Pope Francis acknowledges African bishops’ unique stance on same-sex blessings but remains optimistic about Church unity.

In an interview with an Italian newspaper, he explained that cultural perspectives shape African leaders’ opposition to such blessings.

The Pope emphasized that the recent document, Fiducia Supplicans, aims to unite rather than divide.

Despite concerns about conservative factions leaving the Church, he dismissed talk of schism as driven by “small ideological groups.”

This insight comes from a report by the BBC.
