CWN Editor's Note: During the press conference on his return flight from Romania, Pope Francis paid tribute to his predecessor and denied Italian newspaper reports that he had refused to meet with Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini. “I have not received a request from the vice premier, nothing,” said Pope Francis, who also chided Catholic “fundamentalists” and called upon Europeans to return to the sentiments that motivated the EU’s founding fathers after World War II.
