Pope Francis received the Bishops of Canada on Tuesday, who are in Rome on their ad Limina visit.
Many subjects were addressed, Vatican Radio reported. Social challenges and pastoral subjects for the Church in that country, one of the most secularized in the world, where practices are permitted that challenge ethical subjects, such as assisted reproduction, human cloning, euthanasia and assisted suicide.

March 27: Pope urges bishops from western Canada to be close to their people
VATICAN CITY (CNS) — “That’s your bishop!” a woman shouted to Seamus McKelvey of Winnipeg, Manitoba, as he leaned in for an impromptu picture with three prelates posing for a professional portrait with St. Peter’s Basilica in the background.
McKelvey was with a large group of tourists from western Canada that just happened to be crossing the large boulevard in front of St. Peter’s Square when he decided he would crash the lineup and jump right in for his own souvenir snap with Archbishops Richard Gagnon of Winnipeg, Richard Smith of Edmonton, Alberta, and Bishop Kenneth Nowakowski of the Ukrainian Diocese of New Westminster, British Columbia. It was a prize picture with the prelates dressed in their finest, fresh from a meeting with Pope Francis March 27.

March 25: Bishop Bryan Bayda – When You Close Your Eyes To See
At the invitation of Bishop Ken Nowakowski, I shared a song with the seminarians after the Divine Liturgy at St. Giosafat Seminary in Rome. I wrote it in August of 2016 during a family camp called CANA CONTINUES. The song is entitled, “When You Close Your Eyes To See”. It is based on Pope Francis’ Letter about Family (Post Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Amores Laetitia – The Joy of Loving) – a letter, that Pope Francis wrote to summarize and inspire people to taste the Amore Laetitia – The Joy of Loving. In the context of the family is where we learn from a tender age how to love, forgive, be kind, and say “‘please’, ‘thank you’ and ‘I’m sorry’.”
