2014-12-18

Pope Francis expressed his satisfaction with the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between the U.S and Cuba. He made an off-the-cut comment as he addressed a group of new ambassadors to the Holy See.

POPE FRANCIS
"Today we are all happy because two nations, who were distant for so many years, yesterday took a step to come together. This was achieved by Ambassadors and diplomacy. Yours is a very noble work. I hope it will be fruitful and may God bless you. Thank you.”

Both Barack Obama and Raul Castro highlighted the key role Pope Francis played as mediator in the process. He explained that it was a diplomatic success, because it promoted peace in the world.

POPE FRANCIS
"The work of an Ambassador is about taking small steps and doing small things that look for peace, that bring the hearts of people closer and promote fraternity in the world. This is your work, but it must be done through small, very small things.”

The new Ambassador to the Holy See presented to Pope Francis their credential letters. Among them, the Qatar, Finland, Rwanda and New Zealand.
