How Does a Papal Visit Change a Host Country?
Friday, Nov 24, 2017 - This Nov 27, Pope Francis is going on his 21st apostolic visit outside of Italy. He will be going to Myanmar and to Bangladesh. It’s the third time a pope goes to Bangladesh and the first time one goes to Myanmar. The visit comes in the middle of a crisis that has garnered the attention of the world, that of the Rohingya Refugees, a Muslim minority in Buddhist Myanmar who are having to flee into neighbouring Bangladesh.

On this Weekly Edition of Perspectives, Deacon Pedro speaks with Jerome D'Costa, a Bangladeshi Catholic communicator, who used to work with Caritas, the Catholic Weekly and with World Vision in Bangladesh.
