UN’s new Catholic boss opposed to abortion and marriage equality


Australian women’s groups are disappointed the United Nations will be led by another man for the next five years, despite a strong push to install ex-World Bank executive Kristalina Georgieva to the key post.

Former Portuguese prime minister and president Antonio Guterres was elected to take over from incumbent Ban Ki-moon when he retires at the end of December.

Mr Guterres was previously president of the Socialist International and held the post of the UN’s High Commissioner for Refugees for a decade until the end of last year.



I read about this a couple of days ago. Hopefully he will use that authority in accordance to God’s will. I will keep him in my prayers.


Praying to the Holy Spirit to give him guidance, direction, strength, fortitude & wisdom in his decision making.


A Catholic Portuguese … just in time for the 100th anniversary of the Fátima apparitions :wink:


:thumbsup: praying for this man…
