In what many describe as a triumphant visit this week to the United States, Pope Francis at one point delivered a dramatic address before world leaders gathered in New York City at the United Nations. His Holiness urged world leaders to take decisive action to protect “the excluded” and that “human beings [should] take precedence over partisan interests.” During his remarks, that were broadcast throughout the globe, the Pope warned about the realities in the Middle East and Africa being a grave situation for the entire world.
