In speaking to editors of Jesuit journals, the Pope speaks about being "pro-Putin," the heroism of Ukraine, and those who don't accept the 2nd Vatican Council

Pope Francis had a meeting with the editors of a handful of Jesuit journals published in Europe. He said that he didn’t have a speech prepared and invited the editors to ask him questions, which they did – on topics ranging from reaching youth, to Ukraine and World War III.

Here, we offer a brief summary of the questions. La Civiltà Cattolica of Italy has provided the original text and full English translation here.
