Pope Francis has ended his six-day visit to the United States with an open-air mass in Philadelphia.

Pope Francis also met victims of sexual abuse by priests and promised them that those responsible will be called to account.

At the mass, an audience of hundreds of thousands heard the pontiff urge them to be open to miracles of love for the sake of all families, before he said farewell.
