Thousands of Catholics congregated from before dawn on Saturday (August 5) at Portugal's Fatima shrine where Pope Francis prayed the rosary with sick youngsters, people with disabilities and inmates.
At the huge outdoor sanctuary, one of Europe's most famous, Pope Francis said, just like the Fatima sanctuary, the church has no door and is open to all without exclusion :
"The small chapel in which we meet. This is such a beautiful image of the church. Cosy, no doors. The church does not have doors so that everyone can enter. It is. And here we can also insist that everyone can enter because it is in the mother's house. And a mother always has an open heart for all her children. Everyone, everyone, everyone without exclusion."
Francis arrived in the Portuguese capital Lisbon on Wednesday (August 2) for World Youth Day, a huge gathering of the faithful every two to three years in a different city.
The visit ends with a papal Mass on Sunday (August 6).
