Pope to meet with most powerful European leaders on March 24

March 3, 2017. On March 24 a historic meeting will take place between the pope and many of the most powerful heads of government throughout Europe. The meeting was announced by the Director of the Press Office of the Holy See, Greg Burke and will begin at 6 p.m. in the Sala Regia of the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican.

Pope Francis mainly inspires with his close and direct gestures. His ideas, though more unknown, are all the same inspiring. Among them is the role of Latin America in History.

If there's someone who helped Jorge Bergoglio shape those ideas, it would be Uruguayan philosopher Alberto Methol Ferré. He passed away in 2009.

"Father Bergoglio followed Methol Ferré very closely from Argentina. He felt for him a great interest, personal esteem and, I would say, personal admiration.”


An admiration that can be explained with the book 'The Pope and the philosopher,' a long form interview where Methol Ferré explains the highlights of his thought and beliefs.

Pope Francis actually shares some of them, like the criticism to the current economic system, and the social exclusion it creates.

Philosophy Professor, University of Perugia (Italy)
"It's a society where financial capitalism without any scruples destroys every moral bound. The same society that finds in a desperate individualism and hedonism its most accurate expression.”


When the book was published in Argentina back in 2007, then Cardinal Bergoglio wrote its introduction and used to give it to seminarians.
 
Now it's been translated to other languages, it will make help the ideas Pope Francis as close as his gestures.
