Pope chooses Protestant to produce Argentine edition of Vatican newspaper
[It may be known as L’Osservatore Protestanto or L’Osservatore Ecumenico or L’Osservatore Bergogliano]
Catholic World News – July 12, 2016
Pope Francis has chosen Marcelo Figueroa, a Protestant theologian and a personal friend, to edit an Argentine edition of L’Osservatore Romano.
Beginning in September, Figueroa will edit an Argentine publication that combines material from the weekly Spanish-language edition of L’Osservatore Romano with local content. He told the Crux news site that he plans to rely on Catholic and non-Catholic sources, to give the newspaper ecumencial appeal.
Figueroa told Crux: “We want to spread Francis’ universal, pastoral work, in a way that reaches every Argentine.”
