On his visit to Portugal, Pope Francis meets for the first time Vanessa Rodrigues, a famous pop singer and descendant of the worldwide famous Fado singer, Amália Rodrigues, her departed grandmother. Vanessa was willing to meet the Pope for a long time, and on a recent tour in Italy she had scheduled a presentation in Vatican with Francis, but because of a trucker’s drivers strike she couldn’t make it in time. About one hour ago Vanessa Rodrigues received Pope Francis in Monte Real, the first time he touched Portuguese ground. This visit coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Fatima Sanctuary, a very known location for the catholic pilgrims.
