Pope meets with Prime Minister of Bosnia and Herzegovina

2013-11-22

Pope Francis welcomed the Prime Minister of  Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr. Vjekoslav Bevanda, to the Vatican's Apostolic Palace. 

Their meeting was short, but during their conversation, they talked about issues like the economic crisis and the bi-lateral agreement they signed years ago, known as the 'Basic Agreement of 2006.'  The document outlines issues related to the running of Catholic schools and the spiritual assistance it can give to patients, prisoners and members of the army. 

For years Muslims, Orthodox and Catholics lived in the country, but after the Bosnian war in 1992, the Catholic population significantly dropped from about 1 million to roughly 460,000. 

After meeting members of the staff, the Pope blessed several rosaries. Then both leaders exchanged gifts. 

The prime minister gave the Pope a copy of 13th century plaque, engraved with Bosnian Cyrillic writing. It includes the names of Bosnian kings and it makes reference to the Holy Trinity. 

"So, this shows that Catholics were there before the arrival of Muslims.” 

The Pope gave the Prime Minister a small engraved image of St. Peter. 

Towards the end of their meeting, the Pope thanked the Prime Minister for his visit and as usual he asked for a special favor.
