Von Der Leyen’s appointment ‘blessed’ by the Pope
After narrowly winning political approval last month, Ursula von der Leyen has now received a spiritual vote of confidence — from the pope.
POLITICO highlights that when asked in an interview with Italy’s La Stampa whether he was happy with the appointment of a woman at the head of the European Commission, Pope Francis replied: “Yes, also because a woman can be well-suited to reviving the strength of the founding fathers. Women have the ability to bring people together, to unite.”
