Pope to Papal Nuncios: 'never forget you are pastors'

2013-06-21

POPE FRANCIS
"Your work is more than important. It is aimed at 'making' and 'constructing' the Church. Between the local churches and the universal Church, between the Bishops and the Bishop of Rome. You are not intermediaries, but mediators. With mediation, you create communion. And your most important task is mediation. To mediate, you need to be aware of many things. Not just the paperwork; that's important, too, but most of all you need to know the people. So I think that the personal relationship between the Bishop of Rome and you is essential.”

Nuncios also advise the Pope on who should be ordained a bishop. Pope Francis acknowledged this key responsibility, calling on them to look for candidates who are 'gentle, patient, merciful and animated by inner povert'.


After the meeting with nuncios, Pope Francis was scheduled to have dinner with them in the Vatican Gardens.
