SOUNDBITE (Italian) Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture: "In a way, this is an ecumenical, interfaith and intercultural meeting in which many different facets show up, showing how the horizon is the same for the whole of humanity - because these children all have the same feelings, passions and expectations - and at the same time the humanity is very rich with variety. And to appreciate variety, not to be afraid of diversity, is one of the big, fundamental issues - not only for Pope Francis, but for the whole Christianity." 6. Railway official holding a balloon 7.

SOUNDBITE (French) Laurent Mazas, Pontifical Advisor for Culture: "This is the 6th edition of the Train for Children and it is an event that Pope Francis likes very much because it is clear that he loves children very much and children coming here this year are also Buddhist, Muslim, Orthodox, they come from the large outskirts of Rome and Milan. We asked the children to work before coming to this meeting to compose a map. We call that "The map of the big outskirts," but for them it is the centre of their life." 9. Children with balloons 10.

Balloons rising into the sky STORYLINE: Pope Francis met with over 500 of children of various religions at the Vatican on Saturday as part of the 6th annual "Train of the children" event. The theme of the meeting was "The re-training of outskirts" referring to the difficulties of living in marginal areas with high levels of poverty, criminality and other vulnerabilities. A group of children from the outskirts of Milan met their peers from the outskirts of Rome at Vatican City's small railway station. Some of the young participants were Christian, others Buddhist, Muslim or Orthodox. "In a way, this is an ecumenical, interfaith and intercultural meeting," said Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture. He added the event was an invitation to appreciate how humanity shares the same "horizon" and is at the same time rich with diversity. "To appreciate variety, not to be afraid of diversity, is one of the big, fundamental issues - not only for Pope Francis, but for the whole Christianity," he said. Francis has underlined, on a number of occasions, the importance of diversity and intercultural approaches. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/102011028589719587178/+APArchive​ Tumblr: https://aparchives.tumblr.com/​​ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/APNews/ You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/dd23e8691ce772fd98772fadc96d0782
