Francis: No Glasgow!

Contrary to the previsions, Francis will not be going to Glasgow for the Cop26 climate jamboree, Secretary of State Parolin said today. During his controversial September 1 Cope interview, Francis had confirmed his intention to participate, "Yes, in principle the plan is for me to go. It all depends on how I feel at the time. In fact, my speech is already in preparation, and the plan is to be there." IlSismografo (October 8) writes that Francis’ December visit to Malta, Greece, and Cyprus, will also not happen, calling this a “precautionary decision.” Source
