What did Filipinos tell the Pope through their words, songs, and sheer numbers? What images of the Philippines are forever etched in his memories?

MANILA, Philippines – Pope Francis spends 5 days in the Philippines, the Asian country he sees as a sign of hope. What do Filipinos show the Pope?

In this 15-minute documentary, Rappler presents the Philippines that Francis saw during his state and pastoral visit from January 15 to 19, 2015.

Rappler weaves the best sounds and images from the Pope’s 4 biggest events in the Philippines:

  • His meeting with Philippine President Benigno Aquino III in the presidential palace;

  • His encounter with families at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City;

  • His visit to disaster survivors in Tacloban City and Palo, Leyte; and

  • His gathering with the youth at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila

The story jumps off from Rappler’s #ShowThePope, a crowdsourcing campaign for photos that answer the question: What do you want the Pope to see in the Philippines?
