DeSales Delivers Live Coverage Across Platforms for Pope’s Visit to Egypt

Posted on Apr 28, 2017 in DeSales Blog, Press Room

Pope Francis began his two-day visit to Egypt on Friday, and DeSales Media Group was with him every step of the way.

In a powerful speech at an international peace conference organized by Egypt’s al-Azhar University, Sunni Islam’s highest institute of learning, Pope Francis called on Egyptians and Muslims everywhere to reject the violence of extremism.

“Peace alone, therefore, is holy, and no act of violence can be perpetrated in the name of God, for it would profane his name,” he said.

Pope Francis is just the second pope to visit Egypt, and his trip comes just weeks after 44 people were killed in suicide bombings at Coptic Christian churches there on Palm Sunday. DeSales coverage included live video on NET TV with commentary by Ed Wilkinson, editor of The Tablet, and Liz Fabulas, host of Currents.

Our blanket coverage of the pope’s visit will continue on Saturday as he celebrates a Mass and meets with Catholic clergy and seminarians. Follow us on social media and our websites to stay up to date on this historic visit.
