We begin today with a quick overview of day two of the Pope’s visit to Myanmar. Today, Pope Francis made a courtesy visit to the president of the republic, Htin Kyaw, and state counselor/foreign minister, Aung San Suu Kyi, at the presidential palace followed by a meeting with government authorities and other leaders at the city's international convention centre.
The Pope’s message to Myanmar’s leaders was very clear: Unity, not uniformity, is the secret to peace. Let’s not be afraid of differences and respect the rights of all groups.
To help put into context the political hotbed that the Pope has walked into in that country, and the delicate issues that he has to deal with, Fr. Tom Rosica joins us in todays show to help put all this into Perspective.
