Pope: Vatican seeks talks on Nicaragua’s Catholic crackdown

Source: ABC News

“Pope Francis said Thursday the Vatican was in contact with the Nicaraguan government about its crackdown on the Catholic Church and hoped ‘at the very least’ that nuns from Mother Teresa’s Sisters of Charity religious order would be allowed to return to operations in the country. Francis said he didn’t understand the government’s actions: it has forced out the Vatican ambassador, closed the Sisters of Charity local operation and placed a bishop under house arrest. But Francis stressed that the Vatican was not prepared to sever contact or relations with the Nicaraguan government.” (09/15/22)
