28 Aug

Pope Francis pledged Sunday to visit the central Italy towns devastated by last week’s earthquake “as soon as possible,” while a local prosecutor said substandard construction may be responsible for some of the 290 deaths.Pope Francis Italy Earthquake Church Universal
Francis, following Sunday prayers in Rome’s St. Peter’s Square, lauded police, volunteer workers and other emergency responders in the region and said their efforts show “how important solidarity is in order to overcome such painful trials.”

“Dear brothers and sisters,” he said before leading the throngs in prayer, “I hope to come to see you as soon as possible, to bring you in person the comfort of the faith, the embrace of a father and a brother, and the support of Christian hope.”
Rome is about 90 miles southwest of the ancient town of Amatrice, where the death toll stood at 229 on Sunday. Another 50 deaths were reported in the town of Arquato del Tronto, with 11 reported in nearby Accumoli.
However, 10 people remained missing in Amatrice, a town of about 3,000 people, and authorities said Sunday they might have located at least three more bodies in the ruins of the Hotel Roma.
“I am certain there is one more person (in the hotel), because it is my uncle,” Deputy Mayor Gianluca Carloni told Reuters news service. “It is absolutely vital to finish as soon as possible this initial phase to make sure that there are no more bodies under the rubble.”

#PopeFrancis To Meet With The #Russian #Orthodox #Church

It will be the first meeting between the heads of the Catholic and Russian Orthodox churches in history, since the split between Eastern and Western Christianity nearly 1,000 years ago.

Lombardi called the meeting “beautiful news.” It will take place on February 12 in Cuba, as the Pope heads for Mexico, he said Friday.

The meeting will come less than a year after Francis’ first visit to Cuba as Pope. He played a key role in the recent thawing of relations between the United States and Cuba, which reestablished diplomatic ties last year.

The Russian patriarch was set to visit Cuba this year, according to Russia’s state-run Tass news agency.

The press for greater unity between the two sides of Christianity has been going on for more than 100 years, CNN senior Vatican analyst John Allen said.

“This was the apple of John Paul’s eye, this was his dream,” Allen said, referring to Pope John Paul II. “He wanted to go to Moscow and meet the Patriarch of Moscow.”

A joint news release from the Holy See and the Patriarchate of Moscow said Francis and Kyril will have a “personal conversation” at Jose Marti International Airport in Havana and will conclude their meeting by signing a “joint declaration.”

It’s yet another foray into diplomacy and global affairs for the Pope.

Francis used his papal encyclical last year to issue a sweeping critique of economic injustice and environmental exploitation.
