Meeting of Pope Francis with the indigenous communities of the Amazon in the Madre de Dios Coliseum of Puerto Maldonado, Peru, January 19, 2018.
Jan 19 2018 – Pope Francis landed this Friday in the Amazon where indigenous men, women and children welcomed him on his visit to the world’s largest rainforest. In a meeting with them, the Holy Father warned that the original Amazonian people have never been so threatened …
“The Amazonian peoples are living memory of the mission that God has entrusted to us all: to take care of the Common House,” said the Pope.
Our sisters from Macaya-Pucalpa participated in the Encounter.
