Pope Francis has criticised international leaders, saying they have failed to address war and inequality, in an extract of his new book published Sunday.
The head of the Roman Catholic Church called for major reforms at the United Nations – saying it must find new ways to resolve conflict, as the war in Ukraine goes on.
In his new book, the Pope also says the Coronavirus pandemic has exposed global inequality, with wealthy nations getting priority for vaccines.
He also says leaders must ‘rediscover their purpose’ of serving humanity.
Gerard O’Connell is Vatican Correspondent for America magazine. He is also the author of “The Election of Pope Francis: An Inside Account of the Conclave that changed history”.
He joins us from Rome to discuss this.
