Pope Francis held a private meeting with survivors during his visit to Chile

His words came as vandals attacked another church in Santiago

Multiple churches were firebombed days before the Pope’s arrival

The Pope recommended that priests observe the brief silence before the opening prayer of Mass

Those who are detached from God and the people are ‘sick pastors who have lost their authority’, Pope Francis said

Catholics should focus on their own failings rather than those of other people, the Pope said

‘Reports of the Holy Father using WhatsApp are false’

Starting in 2018, the Vatican will ‘cease to sell cigarettes to employees’

It marks the first major step on the path to sainthood for the late Pontiff
