Pope Francis to Dominican Republic bishops: Work to reconcile marriages

2015-05-28

Pope Francis received bishops from the Dominican Republic in his library. He delivered a very personal message focused on profound social issues.

His message mentions the "serious cultural crisis” that is affecting marriage. He asked them to "not grow weary of the work of marriage and family reconciliation.”

He asked them to also devote time to their priests. They should study the motivations of candidates before accepting them into the seminary. He warned that many seek power, human glory, and economic welfare, while others have "hidden emotional insecurities.”

The Pope also encouraged them to continue helping immigrants from neighboring Haiti. He said that indifference isn't acceptable and he praised their work against human and drug trafficking, corruption, and domestic violence.

They said good-bye one by one, and the Pope received a very special letter by hand.

"A cancer patient...”

Bishops from the Dominican Republic are in Rome for their "ad limina” meeting. It takes place every seven to eight years so that they can update the Vatican on their diocese. 

They last came to Rome in 2007 and met with Pope Benedict XVI.
