POPE FRANCIS VISITS RUSSIAN EMBASSY TO HOLY SEE

Pope Francis left the Vatican on the morning of Feb. 25 to pay a visit to the Russian Embassy to the Holy See to express his concerns over the country’s war against Ukraine, the Press Office of the Holy See confirmed to I.MEDIA.

The Vatican’s press office did not provide a note who was present, but said the pope stayed for just over 30 minutes.

The pope’s visit to the Russian Embassy to the Holy See on Rome’s iconic Via della Conciliazione comes one day after the Vatican’s secretary of state warned of the potential for international destabilization, while maintaining “there is still time for goodwill, there is still room for negotiation.”

Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s top diplomat, said in his Feb. 24 video statement that he hoped those who hold the destiny of the world in their hands will have a “glimmer of conscience.”

“This appeal acquires a dramatic urgency after the beginning of Russian military operations in Ukrainian territory,” said the Italian cardinal in his video. “The tragic scenarios that everyone feared are unfortunately becoming reality.” It is not known at this time if the Holy Father has also planned to visit the Ukrainian embassy to the Holy See.
