Mayors are called to be 'mediators,' says Pontiff

April 07, 2014

Rather than corrupt “intermediaries” who exploit others, mayors are called to the exhausting task of being with the people in order “to create unity, to make peace, to resolve problems and resolve the needs of the people,” the Pope added.
