Pope Francis’ Preferential Option for Diplomats

National Catholic RegisterPope Francis received Archbishop Christophe Pierre, apostolic nuncio to the United States, in a private audience at the Vatican, June 14, 2019. On July 9, the Holy Father named him a cardinal.

COMMENTARY: That the Holy Father has created cardinals from serving nuncios multiple times is one telling sign of their return to power during his papacy.
