Catholics: Your views on new pope
A Pope from Latin America: What does it mean to the Catholic Church?
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
A Pope from Latin America not only represents a new choice of influence and pastoral style in Rome; it also brings the history of 500 plus years of Catholicism presence in a region of the world that concentrates more than 48% of the total Catholic population, with its own societal reality and characteristics. Cesar Sotolongo Explains the meaning of Latin American Culture in today’s role of the Catholic Church and how we could expect to view this new style of leadership on different aspects of the church internally and with the rest of the world.
