However, when he embarks on what will be his fourth visit to South America, he will face the enormous task of restoring trust and encouraging healing, after scandals in both of those countries left many wounded and angry at the Catholic Church. The Pope’s recent foreign trips saw him tackle some of the world’s most difficult geopolitical issues.
