CWN Editor's Note: “This year, Pope Francis made seven foreign trips, visiting 11 countries on four continents, equalling Pope St. John Paul II, who also visited 11 countries in 1982,” said Alessandro Gisotti, director of the Holy See Press Office. Gisotti cited favorably a recent Washington Post article, “Pope Francis tries to transform the Church through his travels.”
