Pope Francis’ visit to Fatima

Pope Francis was welcomed in the Sanctuary of Fatima with great joy and devotion. Right after his arrival, the Pope prayed in silence in the Chapel of the Apparitions, where he offered the third Golden Rose to the Sanctuary. 
On May 13th, Pope Francis canonised the Little Shepherds and left a message of peace to the thousands of people watching the celebrations: ‘Under Mary’s protection, let us be, in the world, sentinels that watch in the night, who know how to contemplate the true face of Christ’.
On his way back, the Holy Father remembered 25 years ago, on May 13th, 1992, when he received the news of his Episcopal ordination.
