Caritas president confirms participation in Milan Expo 2015 (ANSA) - Milan, February 24 - The president of Caritas International on Monday confirmed that the global Catholic charity will participate in Milan Expo 2015, whose theme is "Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life".

"Couldn't this universal exposition be remembered as an event where all of human creativity united to fight world hunger? We hope so," said Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, who is also the archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras and has been chosen by Pope Francis to coordinate the "C8" College of Cardinals working on reforms for the Roman Curia.

Maradiaga added that he hoped it would be possible for the pope to visit the world fair, which runs May-October 2015.
