An audience at the Vatican

The Pope has an interest in cooperatives, or so I gather.  Pauline Green and Chuck Gould, respectively the Chair and Director-General of the International Co-operative Alliance, reportedly spent the best part of an hour with Pope Francis earlier this week discussing among other things the role which coops can play in development.  It probably helps that, as an Argentinean, the Pope comes from a country with a very strong cooperative tradition.
