Pope asks Domínguez: How is Cristina?

Pope Francis today met with a delegation of Argentine politicians led by Lower House president Julían Domínguez, and asked the politician about head of state Cristina Fernández de Kirchner following the ceremony which canonized John Paul II and John XXIII.

"How is Cristina?", the pontiff enquired as he greeted Domínguez, according to a statement released by the legislator after the meeting.

The politician noted after today's ceremony that the social role of the Catholic church had a key role to play in the development of Latin American society.

"The church's social doctrine triumphs as the main current in Latin America, because social humanism is consolidated as a philosophic current; there is a shift from the mercantilisation of the economy to an economy which serves mankind," he underlined.

"Politics means a duty to serve, he who does not live to serve does not serve to live," he added, paraphrasing late priest father Carlos Mujica, before praising Francis' influence on Argentine society.

"Francis has recovered space for common ground in Argentina. Our country, under the direction of president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, has taken an international dimension through the autonomy of decision and through promoting national abilities."

CFK and Francis last met on March 17, when the pair shared a lunch in the Vatican that lasted almost two hours.
