Pope Francis suffers black eye in Colombia

The first questions were asked by Colombian reporters, regarding the Apostolic Visit. "If that is so, I am hopeful that it will be re-thought".

Steve Bannon, who until recently was Trump's chief strategist, accused the bishops of having an ulterior motive in advocating for families affected by the decision to revoke DACA. He said Trump presents himself as pro-life, "and if he is a good pro-lifer, he understands that the family is the cradle of life, and that he must defend the unity" (of the family).

"Removing young people from their family is not a thing that bears good fruit, neither for the young person nor the family", the pope said.

He emphasized that "the relationship to their roots are very important for the young", and observed that "the young are uprooted today, they ask for help, they want to find again their roots, and that is why I insist very much on the dialogue between the young and the elderly". Trump gave Congress six months to hash out how to handle the immigration status of these estimated 800,000 young people.

President Trump's move this month to end the five-year-old program instituted by President Obama plunged nearly 800,000 young people, known as "Dreamers", into uncertainty. In the said prayer event, the pontiff was visibly moved by the testimonies of several Colombians who claim that they have already forgiven their tormentors. "They are very clear", he said.

The Pope said he had spoken with a government official who told him that Sweden is experiencing difficulties integrating the large numbers of migrants who are arriving into the country. "I don't know if we have three years or not, but it's true that if we don't turn back we will go down".

"You see the effects of climate change, and the scientists say clearly the path to follow", said the pontiff, mentioning current reports that the ice at the North Pole is breaking up due to increased global temperatures.

Despite tension over that remark and subsequent differences of opinion, Francis and Trump met at the Vatican in May - and Francis pushed the issue of climate change in person, handing Trump a copy of his own science-laden encyclical about the moral responsibility to protect the environment, just as Trump was mulling his eventual decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord.

"They (world leaders) decide and history will judge those decisions", he added.

Asked why political leaders have not done more to curb carbon emissions so far, Francis paraphrased a passage from the Old Testament.

As a result of the incident, Pope Francis came away with a cut above his left eye and a sizable bruise beneath it.

But the other reason, he said, is nearly always money. "There are many contradictions linked to money".
