Pope says sorry to Pentecostals

It's the first time a serving Pope has went to a church for the denomination.

During his time at Evangelical Church of Reconciliation in the city of Caserta the Pontiff asked for forgiveness for the actions of some Catholics towards Pentecostals.

Francis was told by the pastor there, Giovanni Traettino, that many Evangelical Christians pray for the Pope and thank the Holy Spirit for his election.

The Holy Father had lunch with the congregation after the service before returning to The Vatican by helicopter.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
