· On the flight to Rome the Pope outlines his visit and encourages the Church in Latin America ·
The Church in Latin America has an immese wealth: she is a young Church with a remarkable freshness and a dynamic theology, she is searching. She has many problems of course and is also a bit undisciplined, but she is alive. She is a Church full of life. With the images in his mind of his meeting with the younger generations in Asunción, the Pope outlined his visit in Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay.
On the return flight to Rome on Sunday evening, 12 July, the Pontiff responded, as is customary, to the journalists' questions. He explained that he wished to visit his native land to encourage the young Church with the conviction that it has much to give to those in other parts of the world, especially Europe which is experiencing a decreasing birth rate. Data which Francis underlined his hope that policies will be made to support families.
