Pope Francis welcomed by indigenous peoples in Canada | Most important | English version

Pope Francis arrived on Sunday in Edmonton, Canada, the place he was welcomed with drumming and conventional chanting by representatives of the nation’s indigenous peoples, from whom he’ll ask forgiveness on this journey for the accountability of the Catholic Church within the abuses to which they had been subjected within the nineteenth century in church-run residential colleges the place they had been interned throughout the so-called means of assimilation.

“It is a journey of penance. To illustrate that’s its spirit,” Francis instructed reporters after taking off from Rome earlier on Sunday.

After a flight of greater than 10 hours and because of the time distinction, journey organizers needed to let the pontiff relaxation for the rest of the day on the St. Joseph Seminary within the metropolis within the western province of Alberta in order that he can awake refreshed to take care of the rest of his journey agenda, which can start on Monday.
