During the communications meeting in Rome, on the second day, May 22, 2019, Father Federico Lombardi SJ addressed conference communications directors. Walking in, the room went silent, as everyone stood up to meet and greet the 76-year-old. He is a man who has been at the service of the Church having served in communications for three popes, and as the former papal spokesman; he has been immensely involved in the fight against pedophilia in the Church.
