Pope Francis arrives in the Philippines today, the second stop on his Asian papal tour. The Philippines is the third largestCatholic country in the world (after Brazil and Mexico). The Catholic Church wields great influence on Philippine society and politics. Six million people are expected to attend an open air mass conducted by Pope Francis in Manila’s Rizal Park on Sunday. It will be watched by a global TV audience.
What will the Pope have to say? And what, we wonder, will be hidden from view…
Until next time.
