On Wednesday, September 25th, the JFRC Fall 2013 class attended a papal audience with Pope Francis. Students ventured down to St. Peter’s square in large groups to acquire good seats just to catch a glimpse of the beloved Pope. Pope Francis addressed the general audience about the diversity within the universal Church. As he commented on the diversity of the languages, nations, and followers within the universal Church, over 140 JFRC students originating from various places and religious backgrounds and speaking over twelve different languages came together in this amazing event. Pope Francis stated that the diversity within the universal Church is in fact a sign of unity, which holds true to the JFRC experience. Students come from all over the world to one city, live and attend class in one building, learn countless lessons both in and out of the classroom, create strong friendships to last for years to come and to personally change forever – that is the sign of JFRC unity.
