The newly appointed secretary of state for the Vatican extols the importance of education as the Church’s response to poverty and corruption in the world.
In what is believed to be his final interview before his recent appointment by Pope Francis, Archbishop Parolin told an interviewer from Terre d’America (as translated by NCR):
Archbishop Parolin said corruption “damages the fabric of society” and once again pointed to the importance of education in fighting against it.
Archbishop Parolin succeeds Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone as the Holy See's secretary of state. Parolin was most recently the diplomatic representative of the Holy See in Venezuela.
