Here’s what may turn out to be a somewhat controversial sentence (at least in the U.K. and the Falklands) reportedly contained in an address by the new pope during a commemoration last year of the 30th anniversary of the Argentine invasion of the Falklands, with translation via Harry’s Place (emphasis mine):

We come to pray for all who have fallen, sons of the Homeland who went out to defend their mother, the Homeland, and to reclaim what is theirs, that is of the Homeland, and it was usurped . . .

Hmmm . . .
