Hayley goes to visit the Pope

The leader of the Catholic Church, the Pope, arrives in Britain on Thursday for a four-day visit.

It's a big moment for the millions of Catholics in the UK as it's the first time a Pope has visited in more than 25 years.

Hayley's been to Vatican City in Rome, Italy, where the Pope lives, to find out more about him.

While many people are really excited about the Pope's visit, there are others who disagree with what he stands for and with some of the things he's done.
