The pope’s “3-M” trip

Pope Francis arrived in Africa yesterday on a journey to Mozambique, Madagascar, and Mauritius. The six-day visit to southern Africa, Francis’ 31st apostolic voyage outside Italy, will have three official themes — “Hope, Peace and Reconciliation” in Mozambique (Sept. 4-6), “Sower of Peace and Hope” in Madagascar (Sept. 6-9) and “Pope Francis, Pilgrim of Peace” in Mauritius (Sept. 9).
