Over the coming days, Francis will make a full state visit to Slovakia, spending three nights there. Some Vatican watchers interpreted the flight’s imbalance as a deliberate insult to Hungary. In the lead up to the trip, the Vatican soured to explain that Francis was visiting Budapest for one religious event, the International Eucharistic Congress, then continuing the main part of his journey. Speaking to reporters, Reverend Cornel Fabri, the conference’s general secretary, said many Hungarians were initially “outraged” at the short voyage but came later. Fabry compared it to an invitation to dinner, not to sleep.
