The head Catholic Pope Francis has departed Mongolia today, bringing to a close his historic five-day trip to the remote Asian country.

Pope finished his visit by inaugurating the house of mercy in Ulaanbaatar, a center providing temporary healthcare to homeless people, victims of domestic violence, and others in need.

Francis said at the shelter the true progress of a nation is not gauged by economic wealth, much less by investment in the illusory power of armaments, but by its ability to provide for the health, education and integral development.

He urged all the Christians around the world do whatever they can to alleviate the suffering of the needy.
