Pope Francis Asked Forgiveness From Roma People
Pope Francis asked forgiveness in behalf of the Catholic Church for the mistreatment of the Roma people.
According to Reuters, this might increase tensions Italy’s anti-immigrant Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.
Francis said his heart was “heavy” during his meeting with Roma people on his three day trip to Romania.
He said: “It is weighed down by the many experiences of discrimination, segregation and mistreatment experienced by your communities.” Roma people are the biggest ethnic minority in Europe with an estimated 10-12 million population.
