Papal nuncios gather in Rome for 2-day meeting

Catholic World News - June 20, 2013

The Vatican’s “ambassadors”—the apostolic nuncios who represent the Holy See in various countries—have gathered in Rome for a 2-day meeting, organized as part of the Year of Faith observance.

The nuncios will meet with Pope Francis on Friday morning. In the afternoon they will join for Eucharistic adoration and Vespers in the basilica of St. Paul Outside-the-Walls, with Cardinal James Harvey, the archpriest of the basilica, presiding. Next Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, will preach a meditation. In the evening Pope Francis will host all the nuncios for dinner.

On Saturday, June 22, the nuncios will come together for Mass at which Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Secretary of State, will preside. Later in the day they will hold working meetings at the Secretariat of State.
