Pope to pay tribute to communism victims

The pontiff is to visit the country on 21st September during his first European trip outside Italy.

He will pay tribute to everyone who suffered before the country's communist government fell in 1992.

During his trip, the Holy Father will also stress the importance of interfaith relations.

Albania is a majority Muslim country, but there is a significant Christian minority.

Pope Francis will also celebrate mass in Mother Teresa Square, Tirana, in honour of the Catholic nun who was born in Albania but spent most of her life in India.

The details of the visit were confirmed during a Vatican press conference.

A Monthly Gift Of £5 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 UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of £5 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.
