CWN Editor's Note: In the latest of a recent series of meetings with Argentine leaders, Pope Francis received Federico Susbielles, mayor of Bahía Blanca, on June 15.

“Without a doubt, and as the Supreme Pontiff proposes, the task is to deepen the paths of dialogue, unity, and harmony to create a new political, economic, social, and cultural accord that puts the dignity of persons and care of our common home at the center,” Susbielles tweeted.

Since mid-April, Pope Francis has met with the governor of Corrientes, an Argentine political party leader, the new Argentine ambassador, and the governor of Buenos Aires.

Following his April 17 audience, Governor Gustavo Valdés of Corrientes said that the Pontiff “expressed to me his intention to visit Argentina this year.” Earlier, in February, the Pope met at length with Argentine President Javier Milei, who invited the Pontiff to visit his native land.
