CWN Editor's Note: On May 27, Colombia held its first presidential election since the 2016 peace agreement between the government and the guerrilla group FARC; the two leading contenders will compete in a June runoff. The nation of 48 million is 79% Catholic and 14% Protestant, and Pope Francis made an apostolic journey there in September 2017.
