Fátima Pilgrimage 2011 The International Anniversary Pilgrimage of May 2011 was presided over by American Cardinal Sean O’Malley, Archbishop of Boston, Massachusetts.
On the 12 May, there was the candlelight procession, and on the 13 May there was a national celebration at the Shrine of Fatima, in order to mark the beatification of John Paul II, during wich a rainbow appeared around the sun, and many pilgrims looked at the sky, some thinking it was a miracle.
This reportage is about the faces, the tears, the sacrifices and the unquestionable and overwhelming faith of Fatima pilgrims on those two days in Fatima sanctuary.
