ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Thousands of pilgrims greeted Pope Francis on Tuesday (July 7) as he made his way to a Mass in Ecuador's highland capital, Quito. Approximately one million people were expected to attend the ceremony. The Pope celebrated Mass mid-morning at the Bicentenario Park, a former airport. Political protests had been rocking the socialist-ruled nation of 15 million people prior to the pontiff's arrival, but his presence has brought a temporary halt to demonstrations. Francis is visiting three of the smallest and poorest nations during a week-long tour of his native South America.
