"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Francis embraces Marxist president of Bolivia

Francis embraces Marxist president of Bolivia

In a warm cheek-to-cheek embrace, above, Francis received the communist president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, on June 30, 2018, at the Apostolic Palace. 

Morales went to the Vatican to attend the ceremony raising retired Bishop Toribio Porco to the cardinalate. He said he wanted to witness the creation of "our first indigenous cardinal and worker." Indeed, Porco, himself of aborigine origin, spent part of his life as a worker-priest and was appointed by John Paul II Prelate of Corocoro to deal with the local Indians.

Since the 2019 Synod of Amazonia is expected to change many things in the Church, Morales' visit is an interesting episode where we see Communism praising Tribalism and being warmly received by Progressivism.

In the three first rows below, you see aspects of the prestigious reception Francis gave to the communist . From the fourth row down, you can see different gifts he gave to Francis either in Bolivia or at the Vatican in the multiple encounters of Morales with his "brother Francis," as he calls the Pope.
