EDMONTON, Alberta—Pope Francis’ go to to Canada, which he has described as a penitential pilgrimage, took a extra celebratory activate Tuesday when he presided at Mass in an Edmonton stadium earlier than participating in a standard lakeside ceremony with indigenous Catholics.

Though organizers of the papal go to and the pope himself have made it clear that its purpose is to apologize for Catholics’ function in what Francis known as government-sponsored “projects of cultural destruction and forced assimilation,” his public appearances on his second full day in the country will spotlight a extra harmonious legacy of the church’s relationship with indigenous Canadians.
