Words of the Holy Father

Greg Burke

Your Holiness, good evening, or good night!

We are always grateful to have you here, today perhaps even more so, as it is already after ten thirty [in the evening]. You have spoken about a message of reconciliation, forgiveness and peace. This evening we will try to give you a little peace, we will do things quickly, so you have time to sleep. Thank you. If you would like to say something…

Pope Francis

Good night, and thank you very much for the company. Thank you for your work, which always sows great good. I wish you a good stay. They say it is too hot - I am sorry – but let it at least be fruitful.

Greetings to you.
