Pope Francis met with Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez at the Vatican Saturday.
The Vatican said Oct. 24 that the pope received the Socialist leader in a private audience for approximately 35 minutes at the Apostolic Palace.
In improvised remarks that were captured on video, the pope reflected on the vocation of politicians and highlighted the dangers of ideological thinking.
"It is very sad when ideologies take over the interpretation of a nation, a country, and disfigure the homeland," he said.
