An audience with the pope

popeBishop Munib A. Younan, president of the Lutheran World Federation, presents Pope Francis I with a Salvadoran cross to help inspire his ministry. “May this serve as an encouragement so you offer your pastoral experiences in Argentina as gifts for this new service into which you have been called,” Younan told the pope. LWF General Secretary Martin Junge (left) presented Not Just Numbers, an LWF publication on external debt, to the pope, saying, “Our relationship and our unity, received as a gift of God, unfold their full meaning when we see them in the context of God’s promise of life in abundance to all human beings.”
