    why MR should go for it? in other countries also head of state goes to invite pope? Actually speaking this is public money he waste, really speaking Pontiff Father should have rejected this kind of invitation as its a waste of poor public money.
    I am a catholic i don't appreciate politically motivated actions like this (does not even leave the religion out of politics )
