In Photos: ‘Popes in the Philippines’ exhibition

An exhibition, revisiting previous papal visits to the Philippines, was launched at the Manila Cathedral on June 29.

“The Popes in the Philippines” exhibit showcases memorabilia from the apostolic journeys of St. Pope Paul VI, St. Pope John Paul II, and Pope Francis.

Pope Paul VI visited the country in 1970, marking the first-ever papal visit to the Southeast Asian nation.

Pope John Paul II, on the other hand, made two visits to the country: the first in 1981 and the second in 1995.

Pope Francis, the third pontiff to visit the Philippines, embarked on his apostolic journey in 2015.
