On the last day of Colombian visit, Pope Francis lost his balance when his motorcade came to an abrupt halt, bruising his left eye and cutting his left eyebrow which dripped blood onto his white cassock.
Francis said he was "grateful" to both Italy and Greece for "opening their hearts" on the migrant issue, and said he had seen "very attractive examples of integration" in Italy.
There were a number of questions about climate change, especially with regard to politicians and others who refuse to collaborate with other nations because they deny that climate change is caused by humans.
In the same conversation with reporters on board a plane leaving Colombia after a five-day trip to his native South America, Francis returned to the subject of climate change, a favourite for the pontiff, who was a scientist early in his career.
Pope Francis has sharply criticized climate change doubters, saying history will judge those who failed to take the necessary decisions to curb heat-trapping emissions blamed for the warming of the Earth.
Speaking with a group of reporters overseas the papal plane from a five-day visit back from Colombia, Francis said he hoped Trump would reconsider his decision to rescind the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative, which granted temporary deportation relief and work authorization for people brought to the country as children before 2007. Trump gave Congress six months to hash out how to handle the immigration status of these estimated 800,000 young people.
Steve Bannon, who until recently was Trump's chief strategist, accused the bishops of having an ulterior motive in advocating for families affected by the decision to revoke DACA. "I didn't see the glass".
A bruised Pope Francis smiles during his visit to the Sanctuary of St. Peter Claver, in Cartagena, Colombia, Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017. The pontiff said during the presidential campaign that a man who thought about building walls and not bridges was "not Christian".
He has also strongly denounced current-day slave trade, calling human trafficking a crime against humanity and leading other faith leaders to take a united stand against it.
Mark Ruffalo said Trump's decision was "a cowardly act" and called Trump's team "a cruel, vindictive and heartless administration intent on tearing at the very fabric of the American dream".
But he also shows you how far the supposedly religious conservatives in this country have strayed: they brandish the Bible and claim to be legislating in the name of God, then they throw out the pope at the first sign of criticism from the church.
What they were doing, he said, was saying, "This is my treasure".
