CWN Editor's Note: On October 26, Pope Francis met for 20 minutes with Javier Lambán, the president of Aragon (map) in Spain.

Lambán invited the Pope to Aragon and asked for a renewed appraisal of the antipope Benedict XIII (Pedro de Luna), who hailed from Aragon. Lambán, who praised Pope Francis for his simplicity and moral stature, described the antipope as one of the “wisest and most cultured men of his time, with outstanding intelligence.”
