Vatican Weekend for May 6th, 2017 features a report on the Pope’s Wednesday general audience, a review of the long and colourful history of the Vatican’s Swiss Guards on an important anniversary for this elite fighting force, a look ahead to Pope Francis’ visit to the Marian Shrine of Fatima and how this is being seen in Portugal plus we find out why there is a bullet in the crown adorning the head of Our Lady of Fatima and its connection with a past papal pilgrimage to the shrine.
