History was made when two living popes met. It remains to be seen whether Francis will change the course of the Catholic Church.
The two bishops are the latest heads to roll over a child abuse scandal that has rocked the Catholic Church in Chile. The public firings are signs of a new transparency by the Vatican after years of cover-up claims.
Archbishop Carlo Vigano has launched a fresh attack on Pope Francis, urging him to resign. The accusation came as the pope concluded his trip to Ireland, where he begged for forgiveness for decades of Catholic abuse.
In what could be the first event of its kind, the Vatican is set to discuss the sexual abuse scandals that have plagued it for so many years. Pressure has been mounting on Pope Francis to take action.
The Pope has said he will elevate 14 Roman Catholic churchmen to the position of cardinal. He made the surprise announcement in front of pilgrims and tourists in St. Peter’s Square.
