Papa Francisco em Portugal para a Jornada Mundial da Juventude

August 2, 2023 - O Papa Francisco está em Lisboa para uma visita de cinco dias centrada
na Jornada Mundial da Juventude, um encontro global de jovens católicos.

The 86-year-old Francis is making his first trip since intestinal surgery in June and uses a wheelchair and cane.

In Lisbon, huge stages have been set up, screens installed and posters with Francis’ face plastered across the city.

The event in Portugal, which is about 80% Catholic, comes less than six months after a report by a Portuguese commission said at least 4,815 minors were sexually abused by clergy – mostly priests – over seven decades.

Francis is expected to meet privately with abuse victims.

Francis will also visit Fatima, the town north of Lisbon where the Church believes that the Virgin Mary appeared to three poor shepherd children in 1917, Reuters said.
