On Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI held a Mass in the Jordanian capital Amman for thousands of Middle Eastern Christians on the third day of his visit to the region.
During the Mass the Pope urged the congregation not to forget the "great dignity" that came with their faith.
Thousands of Christians attended, many waving the flags of countries such as Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.
Sunday was declared a public holiday for Jordan's Christians, who turned out in their thousands to greet the Pope at an open-air Mass in Amman's football stadium.
On Saturday the pontiff spent the early morning at Mount Nebo, where the Bible says that God showed Moses the Promised Land.
But the main business of the day for the Pope was to offer conciliatory words to Muslim leaders at the King Hussein mosque in Amman.
After touring the mosque and praying, Pope Benedict told his audience that Christians and Muslims should work together to improve society.
The 82-year-old pontiff then travelled through the town of Madaba, where cheering crowds lined the streets.
On Friday Jordan's King Abdullah and Queen Rania broke with protocol to greet their distinguished visitor at the airport.
Crowds at the Regina Pacis centre for disabled people in Amman were effusive in their welcome, singing songs and chanting "benvenuto", the Italian for welcome.
What are these?
