Pope Francis on Friday received the President of the Commonwealth of Dominica, Charles Angelo Savarin, who subsequently met with the Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, who was accompanied by Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, the Secretary for Relations with States.

A communique issued by the Holy See Press Office called the talks “cordial.”

The parties spoke about the good bilateral relations between the Holy See and Dominica, and noted the opportunity for a fruitful and mutual cooperation between the State and the Catholic Church, an institution which offers a significant contribution to the promotion of the dignity of the human person, as well as in fields such as the education of young people and offering assistance to those most in need.

In addition, they spoke about regional and global issues, in particular the protection of the environment and the issue of climate change and natural disasters, which have caused severe damage and several casualties among the population of the island.

    Jesus is about to come and in our face prophecy is being fulfilled. the Vatican is campaigning all aver the world looking for support in every country to achieve its goal of world domination. for the bible says in Revaluation 13 that the whole world would wander after the beast. the Vatican shows one face in the open but in the dark where no one can see them they are worshipers of Satan. we must follow the bible and not man. he is a man he is not a god. can’t we see he is uniting his troops so he can be made the world leader. in 1798 they lost that political power they had over the world now they are getting it back but God will come and he will expose them for who they really are. please study your bible for there is where the truth is found. in Thessalonians 2:3and 4 calls him the man of sin

    It is a surprise that President Savarin visited the Holy Father, Pope Francis I. We had no idea about this. Of course, it should not be surprising. It was better to keep it a secret for obvious reasons.
    I expect your visit was a highly spiritual one. You may not have had time to apprise the Holy Father of whatever is occurring in Dominica, especially many crimes/murders and escalating ones and such. I hope he will pray for Dominica.
    One day I may write the Holy Father about certain matters and ask him to pray for Dominica and those nationals and those who create trouble in Dominica. These are in dire need of prayers so that Dominica could be restored to a safer and peaceful country of all.
    Everyone should also pray. However the prayers of the Holy Father are definitely efficacious..
    You received his blessing which was blest by God, for life. No one can take this away from you.
    Hope you inform us about your trip to Italy and your visit with the Holy Father.

    You all grudging bad bad bad. When all the other leaders of the world are being met nobody say anything. Meeting this leader is a big problem for you all it looks. Well grudge. You doh like it lomp it! You like all the dirty corrupt leaders who support communism, abortion, and everything else evil. Once its good, once its God all you don’t want it. Then suck up to him tonight when you say the thing called ‘night prayers’. Good luck with that. In fact what I can imagine…God I want to go to heaven but I don’t have time for you, I don’t want my country for you, I want to partake it my bad ways habits, i even worship Obama…Amen.

    If ignorance could be cashed in at the Bank…Dominicans would be the richest folks in the world…all this on social media…laughing stock of the world!

  9. What I was looking for in the news article was at least to say that the Pope prayed with the President, on behalf of our slow growth spiritually of the people of Dominica–especially the younger generation

    Our children are growing up with a mind condition which is carnal–not being able to respond to God and His Principles of Love–that is the reason they steal, they lie, they cheat, and if they are not committing murder they are committing suicide.

    But then again our leaders are no different, whether spiritually or secularly.

    Mankind is forever trying to fix things of which they have not control and remain in ignorance of the ways to fix the things they are called to fix.

    For example is God not the “Sole Controller of Climate Change, or global warming? What can man do to make the climate and atmosphere work according to his demands; can he control the power of the Sun, moon, and stars –Just wondering!

    Unless the people of Dominic are being kept in the dark concerning the purpose of this visit, this has to be a private visit.. The Pope has no jurisdiction over Dominica, , so why would a entourag from Dominca visit the Vatican city unless it is a private visit.

      Sadly, some were once practicing Catholics who allowed themselves to be influenced by false prophets to join their churches. They will die one day and they will realize their error. Hope it will not be to their eternal detriment. God will take care of them in time.
      They are not smart. They do not think how much they sin with their mouths and fingers of all while some of them quote from the Holy Bible and how much they offend our God. Their day will come when they will not be able to use either.
      How much do some of them profess to know what is contained in Holy Scripture? They act/state what is contrary to it, the Word of the Lord.
      Recall what St. Paul said: “This is why many of you are sick/infirm and a considerable amount of you are dying.” Some, at a very young age.
      As Our Lord said: “Let them alone. They are blind guides leading the blind. If a blind person leads the blind, both will fall into a pit.”
      They know the Bible, eh?

      • January 24, 2016

        Actually, the expression ”a sitting pope” is not intended to be taken literally.

        It is figurative language. It implies that the president was visiting a present pope, one who is currently in office, not a retired pope, or a future pope. It means the pope is sitting on ”the chair of St. Peter”, in other words he was functioning in the full authority of the papal office.

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

        I guess you have never heard the word “sitting” used in this manner or are you sarcastic.
        Be careful about being sarcastic where God’s people are concerned. He is not to be mocked and is not amused. Some people do not consider this when they make comments.
        If you want to hear a simplified word rather than “sitting”, it means the “current/present” Pope. It also means “in office.”
        The word could also be used for an “elected” PM and some others who are in office..

      Dominica has forgotten about her GOD and started to worship Politics now. Politics is now the talk of the land and not GOD. GOD only allowed the rulership of Kings in Israel. He never allowed an Opposition Class. Having an Opposition party in every country creates division and no order. Just like a Church there is only a Pastor or a Priest and if you don’t like the Church , get out and find another one.

    Yeah and them labourites were getting a fit over Dominicans coming together to raise funds for Lennox… They have no concern that tax payers money that could have gone to Eric’s victims in t savanne is being used to send the president and his entourage to Vatican City …you can bet your last dollar they did not fly economy class.. Roughly first class fare to Italy and back is about 15 to 20 000 dollars EC per person.. I think about 9 have them went so let’s do a rough calculation..lets due the conservative figure of 15 000* 9= $135.000 and that doesn’t include accommodation which I’m sure is at some 5 star hotel plus entertainment allowances.. That trip is costing roughly $200,000.00 but labourites cool with that cuz it’s done by operatives of the Labour Party..

    P.s that is tax payers monies I’d like to add in contrast to citizen given from their pocket.. A bunch of wicked ppl some of you are…no big out cry from labourites…what benefits is it gonna bring to Dominicans…

      Do not be foolish. Nearly every government of the democratic world has visited the Vatican and met with the Pope. Money paid with taxpayers money. Where I reside, my money goes toward that as well, whether I support the government or not. I am broadminded enough to know this is customary and to be expected.
      It appears only some Dominicans are critical about it as if these are employed and contributing to the revenue of the country. I bet some of you critics do not but have the loudest mouths.
      Some of you are too small minded, lack broad-mindedness, are negative and wicked. How far you expect to progress with what which does not enhance your dignity and progress?

If he is wrong, he stands the chance to make amends before God. Everyone who is alive stands that chance. Therefore, leave this alone. Let it ride.

      Wherever you go there is always a head/leader. If you are employed, you have a boss. If you are married, the man or the woman is supposedly the head of the house. Figure out why the Pope is the Head of the Catholic Church on earth.
      Be careful of your words which are spurred on by Satan, the enemy of God and of our souls. Satan would like to see many souls in Hell, his cauldron of everlasting fire.
      When you die you will see how important the Catholic Church and the Pope were and some of you spoke ill of both and allowed yourself to be adversely indoctrinated and left this Church.

    This is the second publication I’ve seen regarding this. On reading the first publication/notice I wondered what was the real purpose of the visit to the Pope (no reason was given), and for such a short time. Even after this second publication I still can’t see the essence of flying this lavish entourage to Rome. This visit may mean a lot more than meets the eye. It sounded important but with no obvious essential purpose. As technology advances and information becomes more accessible, it seems like protocol and senseless hierarchy will become less and less relevant, practical or even necessary at all. It is time our Gov’ts start putting the needs of its people first and stop adhering to remnant colonial artificial traditions which served the interests of the colonialist even more than it does the local people struggling to find daily bread..It may take a few generations to unlearn this ghastly relic of a subjugated and imposing mindset. Or did The President pay his Holiday in Rome?

      You know nothing as your project. God established His Catholic Church. His Hierarchy which He approves of, for His Church and for godly mortal and spiritual reasons, will never become relevant.
      Governments will pass away but not His Church and Hierarchy which are to stay until the end of time. All other churches that He did not establish will also become redundant long before the end of time.
      In the devil’s eye which influence you to be ignorant, this is what he makes you believe. Do not merely blab your mouth. Think first. As you do, pray to God for enlightenment which you are in dire need of.
      Some of you do not state the truth. You do not have that type of mentality to do so. God expects people will live a godly, fruitful life; not a sinful and wasted one. You should know many have not. Some did not complete school. Everyone must examine their conscience to see how they have lived and why they are in need of. Therefore, do not blame the government.

      The critics deny themselves the blessing of God. This is also, little do they know every time they make sarcastic remarks against the Catholic Church and the Pope. They are harming themselves and their souls also their family especially those whom they live with in their household and their endeavors. Some people are too foolish and not nice. Rude people who say they know the Bible. So much for what they know.

    DNO I am sure that by now Moses, Judas, Peter, Mary, Jesus etc all of them using high tech communication. So right now there is no need to even pray , go to church etc. Just send one of then guys a text or email and ask for whatever is needed. DNO is not me that say is Christians that say that these people are still alive. Anyway all that “bilateral, cordial, communique ” BS could gave been done via conference call,face time,go to meeting etc.
    Charles Saverin and a whole entourage went all the way to Italy just for a few mumbo-jumbo jargons. Unless thee thing could not be done on face time, go to meeting or even email.

    But Lang Mama is nobody on the bigger scheme. London to Rome is 2 hours and thee sousay sel lady could have gone to Italy but our money is theirs.

    I hope Charles get a church building for Sharplis in Portsmouth

    What’s really going on in this country? A couple of months ago, the independence celebrations were cancelled due to the fact that people were not to be seen to be partying so soon after a disaster. Ok,some might say fair enough. Yet we have some president who sits in some sort of neutral capacity APPARENTLY . Yes i had to spell apparently in capital letters.
    This president is now on a jaunt to Rome,to do what only God knows.
    Im certain he did not pay for such a jaunt from his own pocket.

    So the people of Dominica work hard,pay their taxes and then the money is squandered on a trip to the Vatican. That’s absolutely brilliant. This is a classic example of how to misappropriate the funds of a country. Brilliant management of Taxpayer hard earned money.

    Nice one Mr President. I really don’t see what political or economic benefit that this position brings to us in Dominica. Only my opinion people, just my opinion. Thanks

    It’s nice to see Dominica represented in Rome…
    Is Rome aware of the allegations of corruption and mismanagement of the economy?
    Is Rome aware that religious leaders remain quiet whilst politicians get rich at the expense of the poor voters?
    Is the Pope aware of the fact that majority of Dominicans are catholics especially in the government yet still allegation of misconduct in public office continue to be swept under the carpet?
    The president went on to talk about environment and global warming why did he not tell the Pope about the hardship the people experiencing under the labour government who unfortunately are Roman Catholics by majority….
    The Holy Father would have surely told the president to stand up against evil and corruption as a practicing Catholic. …
    The opposition should inform the Pope of the real issues crippling Dominica. .. begining with the president and the labour government. ..
    Present the Pope with a list of allegations against the government…

      I guess that you don’t know the history of the Jesuits and the Roman Catholic Church which has been immersed in corruption and pedophilia since its advent. There is nothing holy about this church except the holes in the stories that it tells. This church is a major power broker and this pope is an advocate for the NWO.

      Actually, I expect many people are wondering the same thing.

      As an independent sovereign nation Dominica is not under the rule of the Vatican. However, the Roman Catholic Church in Dominica is as far as religious matters are concerned. Pope Francis is their ”Universal Bishop” so he will speak into the spiritual lives of Dominican Catholics. No doubt many will wonder why this would require a visit from the President and are hoping it was paid for by either the President himself, or the church.

      I would expect this type of business would be done by the Bishop of Dominica on behalf of the church and paid for by the church.

      Evangelical Christians want the Bible to speak into the lives of the nation and pray for a government that will be guided by the Word of God.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

        You reside in Toronto. All your Prime Ministers have visited the Pope. Obama, US President has visited the Pope. It is customary that these dignitaries visit the Pope. Their visit is broadcasted and also printed in the newspapers.
        The Pope is not surprised about their visit. He expects their visits. Faithful Catholics are not surprised. Why should you be surprised, shocked and make that statement?
        Furthermore, when the Canadian, US and European dignitaries visit the Pope including the Queen no one in their country object. Why should those with little, unenlightened, narrow minds in little Dominica object? Ignorance and envy are a hell of a thing.
        You know that evangelical people commenced existing a few years ago. The Catholic Church and the Holy Bible are 2,000 years old. It is from this Church that all others who formed their churches got the Bible, Luther, Calvin, Henry VIII as a few examples.
        One day all these different churches will become extinct.

        @Rev. What are you talking about? What you mean by “Evangelical Christian”? Does that still exist in Dominica? What is the difference between The Pope, The Bishop Of Dominica, Evangelist Peter Augustine, Pastor BJ, pastor Bubbles and others? Twenty years ago one could easily tell the difference but since Skerrit came in power they ALL the same, and stand for the same thing. In fact, One said Skerrit is the wisest and best PM DA has had, one lied about Villas on national radio, while one claimed to be Skerrit’s spiritual but could not get skerrit to do one single thing that was in line with God’s word.

        “Kid on Block” for how long are you going to remain a kid? I mean it will take some time to empty your brains from the block -age; but you make absolutely no sense. You just last week were saying how we waste money on Lennox and we have so many people in need but now you support the using of tax payers money to send an entourage to Rome for what? Queens can’t be sponsored but a trip to Rome can be sponsored? we call the poor people wicked for coming to Linton aid but we were quiet when poor peoples money was used to sponsor a party for the Baroness 129,000.00 susay sel party. You rejoice over Linton paying Byrne 80,000.00 but you were quiet when Matt had Skerrit pay back 50,000 to the treasury on the land transfer deal and when Lennox uncovered the Bin and Fertilizer boobool over 500,000 paid backed to the treasury you all were very quiet. but I gather since u didnt tell the importance of the trip is for Charlo to asked the Pope to intercede on Dominica behalf.

        The great evil on Dominica is UWP, they caused soo many divisions in this Land. Look on the comments of their followers on their News Line. If DLP supporters loved trouble like them , we would oppose these comments but we are a peaceable crowd, we don’t think negative thoughts. We don’t waste our time with DA politics like these people.
