Papal Coverage and Apostolic Journeys   Pope Francis' Apostolic Visit to Sarajevo

One of the keys of Pope Francis' pontificate, and his priestly ministry, has been his push to build a culture of dialogue among people of different backgrounds. Only by meeting those we perceive as "other" and learning about them, can we hope to live in a world at peace. On June 6 Pope Francis takes this message of dialogue and peace to Sarajevo, a city that is no stranger to war, division and destruction. In the span of only a few short hours he will meet with the people who represent the different ethnic and religious groups in Sarajevo, encouraging their efforts to build lasting peace and sustaining the Catholic minority in their faith. Tune in to S+L for full coverage of this papal visit.
