Decking-out papal venues in Thailand

Let’s take a glimpse of some of the places Pope Francis will be visiting during his three-day visit to Thailand.

Pope Francis is on a seven-day Apostolic Journey to Asia.  His first stopover is in Thailand, where Catholics number around 300,000. The Pope will focus on confirming the faith of this small Catholic community, promoting interreligious dialogue and paving the way for peace and understanding in a predominantly Buddhist country.  In a video message sent to the people of Thailand, the Pope expressed his hope that his visit will “strengthen the bonds of friendship with many Buddhist brothers and sisters”.
