POPE IN EGYPT

Pope Francis arrives in Egypt today, in whose capital he will address an international peace conference with Muslim leaders and in a 27-hour visit in which he plans to defend reconciliation between religions.


The Pope’s trip to Egypt takes place twenty days after the attacks against Copts in northern Egypt, to which the Pope wants to send a signal of closeness and unity.

The main event will be the conference that will take place at the Islamic University of Al Azhar, where it is expected that Francis will send that message of rapprochement between religions and rejection of violence.

Francis is the second pope that visits Egypt, after trip that John Paul II made in 2000.

The Pope argues that dialogue is the instrument both to overcome the recourse to violence that illustrates these attacks and to put an end to differences between the Christians themselves, an ecumenical effort that can also be witnessed in Cairo.

In the Egyptian capital, the pontiff will meet with the Coptic Pope, Theodore II and with the patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew.

Also, with representatives of the small Catholic community in the country, about 250,000 people; the Copts are between 10 and 12 percent of the nearly 90 million Egyptians.

In Cairo, he will be received by the Egyptian president, Abdelfatah al Sisi.

The Pope will travel through Cairo in unshielded vehicles.
