The safety device is reinforced around the European institutions in Strasbourg for the visit of Pope Francis, Tuesday, Nov. 25.
It will be a quick visit, only four hours, during which he will not go to the meeting of the faithful. Enough to arouse the anger of Catholics in the Alsatian capital. “This is not normal, one hour of Mass, he would have come anyway” , a parishioner is indignant at the microphone of France 3.
“It Pope then do not speak any French, never came to France, has a special attachment with France “, says Frédéric Lenoir, a specialist in religions. In comparison, John Paul II made seven visits to France during his pontificate.
Pope Francis will return to France in 2015, for a pastoral visit this time.
