CWN Editor's Note: “Pope Francis actually accepted a possible invitation to visit North Korea last month, when South Korean President Moon Jae-in sent the verbal invitation of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to the Pontiff,” the news agency of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples reported. “The Pope said that if North Korea formalizes an official invitation, he will respond favorably.”
