Relive Pope’s visit via documentary
MANILA, Philippines–Filipino Catholics will get a chance to relive the visit of Pope Francis via a documentary televised nationwide.
The documentary titled “Mabuhay, Lolo Kiko: Pagsulyap sa Pagbisita ng Santo Papa sa Pilipinas,” which had its nationwide premiere last Friday, will be replayed tonight and on April 4, Black Saturday.
The documentary will air on ANC on March 9 from 8 to 9:30 p.m., and on ABS-CBN on April 4 from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
According to the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) website, the film captures some of the most significant moments of the Pope’s visit through the eyes of those who patiently waited, lovingly prepared and wholeheartedly took part in the events of Jan. 15 to 19.
The documentary was made possible by the CBCP’s Episcopal Commission on Social Communications with production help from the Jesuit Communications (JesCom).
JesCom, in the CBCP post, said the title encapsulates how the theme of “mercy and compassion” was embodied and lived by the Filipino faithful, especially in keeping with time-honored values of malasakit, bayanihan and damayan.–Tina G. Santos
