Pope urges ambassadors to work for peace - Vatican Connections

January 14, 2017
This week Vatican Connections takes a look at Vatican diplomacy once again after Pope Francis delivered a traditional New Year's address to ambassadors accredited to the Holy See. The Church gears up for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. The Papal charities open their doors to the homeless as temperatures dropped in Rome and the Office teams up with McDonald's to offer free meals at the Vatican over the next 10 weeks.
