Pave Frans talte til journalister om bord på flyet fra Tel Aviv til Rom, besvarede spørgsmål på stående fod i en time på trods af sin udmattende tur.
Abuse against minors
"A zero tolerance approach needs to to be adopted with regards to this issue.”
The 15 million Euros that were embezzled from the IOR and given to Lux Vide and the financial scandals
