Ambassador Díaz Speaks at the University of Dallas in Rome

On Monday, February 22, Ambassador Miguel Díaz visited the campus of the University of Dallas’ Rome program to speak with over 120 students and faculty members. The Ambassador gave a comprehensive overview of relations between the United States and the Holy See, explaining the importance of this bilateral relationship.

He underlined that the U.S. and the Holy See cooperate extensively on global issues of fundamental importance, such as upholding human rights, including the right of religious freedom.

They also work together to combat poverty and hunger, promote peace, improve global health, and address climate change. The United States and the Vatican also work together against trafficking-in-persons, the Ambassador said. The Ambassador met with university faculty, including the Dean and Director, Dr. Peter Hatlie, afterwards to explore possibilities for working with the Holy See and Catholic youth.
