(ANSA) – VATICAN CITY, AUGUST 27 – The Pope, in the homily of the Consistory, warned of the risk of a new cold war. He quoted Cardinal Agostino Casaroli (who was Vatican Secretary of State from 1979 to 1990), “rightly famous for his open gaze to support, with wise dialogue, the new horizons of Europe after the Cold War. And God forbid that human myopia – Francis emphasized – closes again those horizons that he has opened! “.
The Pontiff created twenty new cardinals and invited them to treat everyone, great of the earth and small, in the same way. “A cardinal loves the Church, always with the same spiritual fire, both in dealing with the great questions and in dealing with the small ones; both in meeting the great of this world, who must do so, many times, and the little ones, who are great before God “, underlined Pope Francis.
