Pope meets with 96 new bishops learning about their new position in Rome

2016-09-09

It is a very special audience. These 96 priests were named bishops within the last two years, and are in Rome to learn more about their position.

CARD. FERNANDO FILONI 
Prefect, Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples
"The Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples has also organized a seminar this year to train and support bishops appointed by His Holiness in the last two years, both from young Churches and territories entrusted to us."

These new bishops are working in the social or politically more complicated parts of the world, in particular, countries with few Christians or with delicate social situations.

POPE FRANCIS
"The places where you serve are very different and far apart, and belong to the constellation called 'mission lands.'"

The Pope asked them to work hard to avoid divisions, and gave practical advice on how to help their priests by immediately responding to calls or letters.
