When Pope Francis visits Romania this Friday he will have a chance to build on John Paul II’s legacy and maybe even bring his own message to Europe.
Catholic leaders in Greece urged their country to learn lessons from the worst wildfires in a century, which left at least 91 people dead and more than 500 injured.
“Indifference kills,” Pope Francis said during an ecumenical prayer for peace in the Middle East with 19 religious leaders in the Italian town of Bari.
As it turns out, Friday has been a “best of times, worst of times” sort of day for Ukrainians watching pro-Russian rebels trying to devour a portion of the eastern part of their country. They observed a tragic anniversary, but also got a significant, if indirect, boost from Pope Francis.
