Pope Francis sends video message to conference of Evangelical Christians

Pope Francis has sent a filmed message of Christian unity to a conference of Evangelical Christians.

The video begins with an introduction by Bishop Tony Palmer, a personal friend of Pope Francis, based in Texas who speaks about the tragedy in the way Christianity has becomes so divided over the years, and says:  "I have come to understand that diversity is divine; it's division that is diabolic."

Pope Francis then gives a brief introduction in which he explains that he doesn't speak much English but is going to speak "heartfully". He goes on to speak in Italian and the video has subtitles. 'We are brothers" he says.  "Let us come together like Joseph and his brothers'.
