Many people have emailed the Vatican Press Office as part of a campaign asking the Pope to condemn the bullfight. But these letters do not seem to be eliciting a response. Therefore I am asking caring people to email the Apostolic Nuncio (Pope’s Representative) in their country, which will make your emails asking the Pope to condemn the bullfight more difficult to ignore. Please copy and paste the following (or use your own words):

Pope Francis, show your concern for creation by condemning the bullfight and directing that your Bishops officially proclaim your condemnation.

Send to the Apostolic Nuncio for your country:

Apostolic Nuncio for United Kingdom –
Apostolic Nuncio for USA –

All other Apostolic Nuncios can be found here:  

(if possible send a copy to Greg Burke, the new Director of the Vatican Press Office:


Many thanks,

About Author

In response to Pope Francis’ call for dialogue and action concerning the care of our common home, Catholic Action for Animals (a group of Catholics in Milton Keynes) has set up a local parish group which meets once a month, to educate about and promote concern for our fellow creatures, and to be a witness to the Church’s concern for animals, There is much to do, as Catholic clergy are usually silent about animal matters, which is reflected in church-goers' attitudes towards animals.
