Pope Francis waves as he embarks his flight to Monte Real, Portugal, from Fiumicino's International airport, near Rome, Italy, Friday, May 12, 2017. The pope is traveling to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima where on Saturday he will canonize two poor, illiterate shepherd children whose visions of the Virgin Mary 100 years ago marked one of the most important events of the 20th-century Catholic Church.
