Visit of Pope Francis to Fatima
Pope Francis was greeted by crowds of hundreds of thousands as he made saints of two shepherd children at the Fatima shrine complex in Portugal. We were proud to supply the paraments for this event. Jeroen Kerre worked on a special design, reflecting the event. The white fabric of the vestments refer to the immense light shining during the apparitions. The gold and silver threads in the embroidery, refer to the decorations on the robes of the virgin.
