We would like to extend a warm welcome to Pope Francis who is in Bangladesh on a three-day visit. This is a historic moment for us and for the Christian community in Bangladesh in particular. The Pope's arrival comes on the heels of his visit to Myanmar—marking the first time that a pontiff visited the Buddhist-majority nation—with the purpose of working for reconciliation and peace. Needless to say, the Pope's visit to the two countries at a time when a massive refugee crisis continues to unfold in our southeastern border is extremely significant.
