Francis to visit Colombia in September in peace deal push

 | 

Pope Francis will visit Colombia in September, giving a papal push for success to the implementation of the landmark peace deal agreed last year between the country's government and the rebel militants it had been fighting for decades.

The Holy See Press Office announced the trip from the Vatican late Friday, March 10. At a press conference shortly thereafter, the Colombian bishops' conference said the papal visit will carry the theme Vamos a dar un paso adelante ("Let's take a step forward.")
