Pope Francis met on April 15 with Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy Brey of Spain, for a conversation that centered on that country’s economic difficulties.
The economic crisis in Spain “has provoked a serious labor crisis, involving many families and particularly the young,” the Vatican observed in a statement released after the Spanish leader’s visit.
The talks also covered relations between the Holy See and Spain, and the need to preserve the family and the integrity of marriage.
