Italy should look to what unites, not divides says pope
Francis greets Letta at Assisi Mass04 October, 11:59
"We pray for the Italian nation, that everyone should always work for the common good, looking to what unites rather than what divides," he told an open-air mass in St Francis' Square.
He greeted Premier Enrico Letta, whose shaky left-right government emerged strengthened from a confidence vote this week, and the Italian people, recalling that St Francis is one of Italy's two patrons along with St Catherine of Siena.
Letta was one of many dignitaries who attended the Mass.
