Pope Francis at Amazon synod

Pope Francis walks in procession on the occasion of the opening of the Amazon synod, at the Vatican on Monday. Pope Francis opened a three-week meeting on preserving the rainforest and ministering to its native people as he fended off attacks from conservatives who are opposed to his ecological agenda.
