It was a great honour and spiritually uplifting to present the Letters of Credence to His Holiness Pope Francis.
He has spread the message of goodness and humility through personal example and through his messages. His Encyclical Letter Laudato Si: Care for our Common Home, is an eloquent plea to save our planet from the ravages of climate change and is based on scientific study. It accords very much with India's position as enunciated by Prime Minister Modi at COP21, and Mahatma Gandhi's observation that the earth may have enough for everyone's need, but it cannot accommodate everyone's greed.
His Holiness does not live in the beautiful Vatican, but has shifted to a more austere residence outside. He mingles among the ordinary people and carries the message of peace and love to different corners of the world. India hopes for stronger relations with the Holy See which represents more than a billion people.
