8:27 a.m.

Pope Francis is beginning the second full day of his South American tour. The 78-year-old pontiff is set to meet with Ecuadorean bishops in Quito before celebrating Mass at the city's Bicentennial Park, a large green space in the area of a former airport.

In the afternoon, he'll address leaders of the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador before doing the same with civil society groups in the early evening.

Then later at night, he'll make a private visit to the Church of the Society of Jesus, known locally as Iglesia de la Compania. The Jesuit church is one of the oldest and most known in Ecuador. It houses a painting of the Virgin Mary that was said to shed tears in 1906.
