On May 13th, 2017, the Pope was in Portugal to canonise the two youngest shepherds who claimed to see the Virgin Mary 100 years ago, which turned Fatima into a world-famous pilgrimage site. Pope Francis was welcomed by Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.
On the same day, Lisbon football team SLB (Sport Lisboa e Benfica) won the Portuguese championship for the fourth time in a row.
Later that day, Portugal won the Eurovision Song Contest for the very first time through the delightful voice of Salvador Sobral.
What an eventful and historic day!
