Pope Francis had a pretty busy day today.
As well today, Pope Francis had several audiences, including with:
• bishops of the Episcopal Conference of Gabon (full text in Italian, summary video)
• members of the Conference of European Hassidic Rabbis (more details, full text, summary video)
• Slovenia’s new ambassador to the Holy See (summary video)
Later in the afternoon, Pope Francis sent a letter of condolences and prayer to the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Tewahedo Orthodox Church, His Holiness Abuna Matthias, regarding the deaths of Christians beheaded and shot over the weekend by the Islamic State in Ethiopia (full text, summary video).
And today, Pope Francis made an appointment.
And that’s the Pope Francis news for the day!
