Pope Francis arrives to celebrate an open-air mass at Samanes Park in Guayaquil, Ecuador on July 6, 2015Pope Francis celebrated an open-air mass with hundreds of thousands of faithful under scorching heat in Ecuador on Monday, highlighting the importance of family on his return to his home region. The first pope from Latin America made an impassioned plea to fulfill the "social debt" toward families as he addressed some 800,000 people in a park in Guayaquil, Ecuador's largest city, according to official figures. A sea of Catholics, many from neighboring countries, held pictures of the pope or images of the Virgin Mary at Samanes Park as the Argentine-born pontiff waved from his popemobile before saying mass.

With Greek banks rapidly running out of cash and the European Central Bank slowly tightening the noose on their funding, Tsipras must persuade the bloc's other 18 leaders, many of whom are exasperated after five years of Greek crisis, to open rapid negotiations for a major new loan to rescue his country.
