12. Pope Francis' 5-day PH visit

Pope Francis drew a record six million people when he celebrated Mass in Luneta as part of his five-day state and apostolic visit to the Philippines in January.

The charismatic pontiff, known for his simplicity and humility, also had an emotional encounter with former street children and met with survivors of super typhoon "Yolanda" (international name "Haiyan").

Throughout his visit, Pope Francis was also seen several times reaching out from his popemobile to kiss babies and children from the crowd.
