Today Pope Francis received a number of people in audience, including:• Father Adolfo Nicolás Pachón, Superior General of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), with Father Mauro Jöhri, Minister General of the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, President of the Union of Superiors General
• Mrs. Nicola Zingaretti, President of the Lazio region of Italy
Pope Francis also made one appointment.
In Pope Francis related news:
There is an article in L’Osservatore Romano to counter reports in the Italian media regarding lower jubilee attendance than anticipated. Apparently, approximately 1,025,000 people have registered for this year’s jubilee events thus far (more details).
As well, there’s a really really good article on how Laudato Si has been influencing an increase in faith-based environmental care activities in the Buffalo, NY region.
And that’s the Pope Francis news for the day!
