Freeing hearts from hatred

In Kazakhstan on 15 September, Pope Francis strongly supported the core projects of the Jesuits in the region for peace and a better future: freeing hearts from hatred. This emerged from his conversation with fellow Jesuits who met him there during His short trip to participate in the congress of the leaders of world religions.

Even though there aren’t any Jesuits in Kazakhstan, Pope Francis met in Astana with some 30 Jesuits who work in Russia, Belarus, and Kyrgyzstan. He intended the gathering, as always, to be characterized by conversation, candor, and brotherhood.

The Jesuit editor of La Civiltà Cattolica, Antonio Spadaro, was in attendance and, as is customary for him, he published a thorough account of the conversation for the readers of the Jesuit magazine. There was a lengthy discussion about the Holy See’s commitment to peace and the conflict in Ukraine. Argentina, the Pope’s concerns and worries, and the connections to the Orthodox also were mentioned.
