Private audience with the Holy Father

Grand Chancellor and President of the ITI met Pope Francis on August 30th at the Vatican

At the conclusion of the annual meeting of the International Catholic Legislators Network, of which Cardinal Christoph Schönborn is a Patron and which is chaired by Dr. Christiaan Alting von Geusau, Pope Francis received participants from all over the world in private audience in the Clementine Hall of the Vatican. During the audience, the ITI president presented to the Holy Father the conclusions of the gathering, which focussed on the protection of life and the family, the urgent help needed for persecuted Christians and how to deal better with the current refugee crisis in Europe. The Holy Father called upon Catholic legislators to use the many possibilities they have to counter a culture of waste where human life is so easily discarded.
