The pope, especially this one, is going to be a rock star pretty much anywhere he goes.
But Pope Francis' visit to the Philippines will likely take that adoration to an entirely new level. Francis landed in Manila Thursday, greeted by a country not just fervently Catholic, but eager to hear his planned message advocating for the exploited and poor.

Before he even landed, Pope Francis spoke to reporters aboard the plane about a number of topics from climate change to the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.
