Vatican strongly reacts to episcopal ordinations in China made without pope's permission

November 7, 2016. "In recent weeks, there has been a series of reports regarding some episcopal ordinations conferred without Papal Mandate of priests of the unofficial community of the Catholic Church in Continental China,” explains the Vatican in a letter signed by the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Greg Burke.

Vladimir Putin made his way to the Vatican on Monday afternoon, to meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican's Apostolic Palace. During their 35 minute meeting the Pope urged Vladimir Putin to protect human dignity. As a gift, the president gave the Pope an Byzantine icon of Our Lady of Tenderness. 

Even though this is the first time both leaders have directly met, they had addressed each-other before. At the start of the G20 summit in Russia, the Pope sent a letter to Putin, urging world leaders to not respond to the Syrian crisis with military action. In Putin's open letter to the New York Times, the president highlighted the Pope's call to set weapons aside. 

Putin met with Benedict XVI in 2007 and with John Paul II, twice, in the year 2000 and again in 2003.
