Pope Francis continues to surprise.

In a message to Dr. Riccardo Di Segni, the Chief Rabbi of Rome, the Holy Father said, “Trusting in the protection of the Most High, I strongly hope to be able to contribute to the progress of the relations that have existed between Jews and Catholics since Vatican Council II in a spirit of renewed collaboration and in service of a world that may always be more in harmony with the Creator’s will.” We talk with Dr. Eugene Fisher, former associate director of the Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs of the USCCB.

In his homily to open the papal conclave, Cardinal Angelo Sodano asked God to provide a pope who will proclaim the Gospel message of mercy.

Sharing this call to mercy, Cross Catholic Outreach has a long-standing relationship with the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, the personal charitable outreach arm of the Holy Father.
