Pope Francis to Visit Bolivia in 2015, Morales Says

LA PAZ – Pope Francis plans to visit Bolivia in 2015, President Evo Morales said on Friday, without mentioning any dates.

Morales shared the news during a gathering of Bolivian ambassadors at the foreign ministry, where he hailed the Argentine pontiff’s role in brokering a diplomatic rapprochement between Cuba and the United States.

“Truly, I want to tell you, now I feel I have a pope,” the president told his country’s diplomats.

Morales met last Saturday with representatives of the Bolivian Bishops Conference to talk about a possible visit by Francis to the Andean country.

La Paz Archbishop Edmundo Abastoflor said Thursday that a Vatican commission will come to Bolivia to survey places the pope might visit.

Morales had a private audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican in October.

In 1998, John Paul II became the first pope ever to visit Bolivia.
