Pope calls on Italian bishops to reduce the high number of dioceses in the country

2013-05-24

POPE FRANCIS
"I know there's a commission for this, to lower this excessive number of dioceses. It's not easy, but there is a commission for it. We must move  forward with fraternity. Italy's Episcopal Conference should embrace this dialogue with Italy's cultural, social and political institutions. This is your task. Onward!

To celebrate the Year of Faith, the Pope prayed the Creed along with the bishops, before the tomb of St. Peter. A group of deaf people also joined in the celebration. They were able to follow all the prayers and songs, thanks to a sign language interpreter. Towards the end, the Pope took the time to individually greet the 250 Italian bishops.
