ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE
September 4, 2019
By Inés San Martín
Pope Francis today said he is “honored” by the fact that a group of conservative, right-leaning Catholics from the United States attack him.
The pope was speaking aboard a papal flight to Mozambique, the first stop of a three-nation swing through Africa, when he was presented a new book on conservative opposition to the papacy written by a French reporter on the flight.
“For me, it’s an honor that Americans are attacking me,” Francis told La Croix‘s Nicolas Seneze, author of How America Wanted to Change the Pope.
