Pope Francis’ Apostolic Journey to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia
This weekend, Pope Francis will embark on a four-day Apostolic Journey to Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. From September 22nd to 25th, the Holy Father will tour the Baltic nations and visit many of the same places that Pope St. John Paul visited twenty-five years ago.
This intense trip will take the Holy Father to two Marian shrines, youth rallies, and a religious persecution and liberation museum. The pope will also reach out to other Christians by attending two major ecumenical encounters that will commemorate each nation's fight for freedom from oppression when the three Baltic nations declared their independence from Russia in 1918.
Salt + Light TV will broadcast many of the events on the network over the weekend along with highlight coverage on Perspectives Daily next week.
