Statement of the Vatican Press Office on Pope's remarks to Scalfari
The Press Office of the Holy See has released a statement on Thursday concerning remarks attributed to Pope Francis in an article in Italian newspaper "La Repubblica."
Statement of the Press Office
The Holy Father recently received the founder of the newspaper La Repubblica in a private meeting on the occasion of Easter, without, however, granting him an interview. What is reported by the author in today’s article is the fruit of his reconstruction, in which the precise words uttered by the Pope are not cited. No quotations in the aforementioned article, then, should be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.
