The Pope Reflects on His Trip to Myanmar & Bangladesh - Perspectives Daily

December 7, 2017
This morning, Pope Francis gave his weekly catechesis at the Pope Paul VI hall. It was his first general audience since he returned from his apostolic voyage to Asia last Saturday. To the crowd gathered, about 8000 pilgrims, the Holy Father spoke about his trip to Myanmar and Bangladesh. It was the first time a pontiff initiated such a visit.
At the general audience Pope Francis also expressed his concern for the situation unfolding in Jerusalem. American President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel, by announcing his intention of moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This decision the Holy Father admitted, could have serious repercussions and destroy peace efforts in the Holy Land. Despite numerous warnings from European and Middle Eastern authorities, President Trump still intends to follow through.
