Pope Francis will visit Asia and Africa in 2017

In a videomessage addressed to his compatriots, Pope Francis explained that he will not be able to visit his homeland in 2017 because he has "other engagements in Asia and Africa.� He did not specify which countries he will visit nor did he say if he will visit other American countries like Colombia or Peru. He encouraged Argentinians to "shoulder the Motherland�, thus following the example of Mama Antula, beatified in August, and the "Gaucho Priest� Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero, who will be canonized on October 16.
