Nicaraguan bishop goes on hunger strike over “government persecution”


Pope Francis continues with his official agenda and on Monday morning he received representatives from Bulgaria and the Republic of North Macedonia. 

We know you are hearing this.

The Macedonian president, who knows the Pope's musical taste, gave him a unique album by Vlatko Stefanovski, one of the country's most prominent local artists. Stefanovski mixes local rhythms with rock and jazz.

However, the gift that surprised Pope Francis the most was from the Bulgarian Prime Minister, who gave him this simple crib made of wool.

This is worth more, so much more than a pot of gold.

Pope Francis continues to hold meetings in a wheelchair, but it doesn't seem to dampen his spirit.
