He specifically said he was worried about aggressions against Christians in parts of India. That’s why the pope asked religious leaders to focus their efforts on helping the faithful to live a more saintly life.

The pope also spoke about the economic crisis and asked the ambassadors not forget poor countries that are worse off today because of the recession.
