CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis met on January 10 with members of the Transversal Dialogue Project, a group dedicated to seeking collaboration between Marxists and Christians.

Saluting their “very fine program,” the Pope encouraged them: “Don’t back off, don’t give up, and don’t stop dreaming of a better world.”

In his remarks the Pope said that some 20th-century ideologies “discarded and killed those who were most vulnerable.” In that context he mentioned Nazism, but not Communism.
