Francis wants to visit the September 14/15 inter-religious congress in Nur-Sultan (formerly: Astana) in Kazakhstan, he told Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in a video call (VaticanNews.va).
The congress initiated in 2003, is held every three years on the model of the "Day of Prayer for Peace" convened in Assisi by John Paul II. The 2022 Congress is about the highfalutin theme “The Role of Leaders of World and Traditional Faiths in the Socio-Spiritual Development of Humanity after the Pandemic.”
Scheduled for June 2021, the meeting was postponed due to Covid. The meeting place is a 77 meters pyramid built in 2018 as a conference venue for world and religious leaders.

A major theme of the September 2022 meeting will be “gender equality” and the “contribution of women to the well-being and sustainable development of society and the role of religious communities in support of her social status.” A roundtable was held March 30 to prepare this section of the 7th Congress under the sign of “progressive strategy.” During the meeting, one participant spoke of the “harmony of Islamic civilization and the Kazakh worldview.”

Maybe he isn't that sick after all, if he wants to go there. I know some people would be devastated. I don't wish him ill health or dead, just I wish he would decide to quit.

The city is beautiful, looks like something from Star Trek or Star Wars. I hope Kazakhstan isn't a majority Muslim country, knowing how much Francis LOVES Muslims so much. He would be a much better Mullah or Ayatollah than he is Pope.

The cartoon is apt - Christ is missing in the actions of this man. Lord have mercy!

Maybe we could fly Bergoglio out permanently and use the return ticket for Bishop Athanasius Schneider as his replacement in the Vatican? 😎 A fair exchange is no robbery.
