CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis spoke of the “duty to obey” the United Nations and other international institutions; he also weighed in on populism and xenophobia, “ideological colonializations,” Europe’s demographic winter, the distinction between evangelization and proselytism, schism, his attitude toward criticism, and “rigid Christians, bishops, priests.” “Xenophobia rides the waves of political populism,” he said. “I hear speeches being given that sound similar to those made by Hitler in ’34. It’s as if they wanted to return to the past in Europe.”
