#PopeFrancisPH: The papal route to Villamor Airbase
Watch Pope Francis make his way to Villamor Airbase, to depart Manila for Leyte

MANILA, Philippines – Pope Francis makes a historic first trip to the Philippines.

Rappler is livestreaming the events of his 5-day visit which includes a meeting with President Benigno Aquino, and meetings with priests, the youth and families in the country’s capital, Manila. He will also spend a day in Leyte to meet the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan).

The charismatic pontiff is expected to draw crowds of thousands to millions, possibly rivaling the 5-million-strong crowd of Pope John Paul II’s visit in 1995. For more stories on the Pope, visit #PopeFrancisPH.
