New Interview With Pope Francis to Appear on Sunday

07/25/2014 Comments (59)

The latest interview with the Holy Father will be published in an Argentine magazine.

According to ZENIT:

A new interview with Pope Francis is to appear on Sunday in one of Argentina's best-selling magazines.

The publication Viva, a Sunday supplement of the newspaper Clarin, will feature the interview, made to coincide with the 500th day of Francis' pontificate which takes place tomorrow. 

According to reports, the Holy Father will discuss the recent upsurge in violence in the Middle East, concerns about youth unemployment, and his forthcoming encyclical on safeguarding the environment. He will also share details of his life in the Vatican.

This will be the Pope's tenth interview with the mainstream media, including his airborne press conferences.

Although the interviews have in many ways helped bring the Pope and the message of the Gospel to people who might otherwise pay no attention to the Church and the papacy, some have caused problems and been criticized for causing unnecessary controversy and confusion.

Unlike his most recent conversation with Eugenio Scalfari, however, this one has definitely been recorded.
