The Pope asks for prayers for his trip to Lesbos, 13.04.2016

Vatican City, 13 April 2016 – After today's catechesis the Holy Father mentioned that next Saturday he will travel to the Greek island of Lesbos, a transit hub over recent months for a large number of refugees. "I will go with my brethren, the Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew, and the Archbishop of Athens and All Greece, Jerome, to express solidarity and closeness both with the refugees and the citizens of Lesbos, and all the Greek population. I therefore ask, please, that you accompany me in prayer, invoking the light and strength of the Holy Spirit and the maternal intercession of Our Lady".
