Pope Francis blessed Lithuania from cruising altitude as he flew over the Baltic country on his way back to Rome from Tokyo.

When the plane entered Lithuanian airspace, Pope Francis addressed a telegram to the Lithuanian president, according to Vatican News.

“On my way back from a visit to Thailand and Japan, and flying above Lithuania, I’m sending sincere greetings to you and all the citizens,” the Pope is quoted by Vatican News. “I pray that God will bless your nation, and will award you all with peace and welfare.”

Pope Francis visited Lithuania in September 2018.
