Ukraine’s ambassador to the Holy See has hinted at a possible papal trip to the war-torn country is in the works. The ambassador posted a series of tweets after meeting with the Holy Father Saturday saying the people of Ukraine ‘have been waiting for the pope’ and will “be happy to greet him before his trip to Kazakhstan.”

Pope Francis has, on several occasions, expressed interest in visiting Ukraine, but has also said such an outing would be complicated.

Joining Currents News to discuss more about the pontiff’s potential visit to Ukraine is John Allen, editor of Crux.
