Reuters' Vatican correspondent Philip Pullella spoke with Latvian Radio's Gints Amoliņš, reflecting on a life spent following three popes around the globe as part of his duties with the news agency.

Topics touched upon include the contrast between papal visits in 1993 and 2018, the varying characters of the three men Pullella has seen in the pontifical position and the sex scandals that have undermined faith in the Roman Catholic church as an institution.
