DeSales Offers Extensive Live Coverage as Pope Visits Fatima

Posted on May 12, 2017 in DeSales Blog, Press Room

Huge crowds greeted Pope Francis on his trip to the Shrine of Fatima in Portugal on Friday, and DeSales Media Group again brought live coverage across platforms to its readers and viewers.

Just two weeks after the Pope’s trip to Egypt, he is visiting Fatima to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Mary’s apparition to three shepherd children there. On Saturday, Pope Francis will canonize two of the three, Blessed Jacinta Marto and her brother Blessed Francisco Marto.

At Fatima on Friday, Pope Francis led a crowd of thousands in prayer, including a recitation of the rosary and the Hail Mary. NET TV brought viewers live coverage of the Pope’s visit, including commentary by Ed Wilkinson, editor of The Tablet, and Liz Fabulas, host of Currents, and provided up-to-the-minute reports via social media.

Tune in early on Saturday as the Pope celebrates a huge open-air Mass to declare the two shepherd children saints.
