This morning, at 11.30, in the Consistory Hall of the Vatican Apostolic Palace, the Holy Father Francis received in audience the Evangelical Leaders present for the Vigil of Pentecost.
The following is the Pope’s off-the-cuff greeting to those present:
Holy Father’s Greeting
Thank you for this greeting, and also for making the effort to visit me. Thank you for what you do, working for Christian unity, all together, as the Lord wishes. Let us walk together, let us help the poor together, charity together, education together. All together. And may theologians carry out their work and help us too. But we, always walking, never still, never still… and together. This is what I wish for, and I thank you because I know you do this.
I would like to end, as brothers, reciting the Lord’s Prayer together, each one in his own language. Can we do this?
See you later.
