Vatican Delegation Travels to Colombia Ahead of Pope’s Visit

BOGOTA – A delegation of Vatican officials, Swiss Guard personnel and Colombian officials toured Cartagena on Sunday as part of the preparations for this week’s papal visit to Colombia.

Cartagena was the last city that the delegation had to visit before Pope Francis arrives on Wednesday.

Colombian Bishop Fabio Suescun hosted the tour of Cartagena, where the delegation reviewed details of the papal visit, organizers said in a Twitter post.

The delegation, which includes Colombian Foreign Ministry officials, set the goal of reviewing “every last detail” of the visit, organizers said.

The delegation delivered the hosts to be used at the Mass that Pope Francis will celebrate in Cartagena, a city located on Colombia’s Caribbean coast.

The delegation previously delivered hosts to Bogota, Medellin and Villavicencio, the other cities on the pontiff’s itinerary.

During its visit to Medellin, the delegation met with army 4th Brigade commanders to discuss security and communications matters.
