I greet all the English-speaking pilgrims and visitors taking part in today’s Audience, particularly those from Korea, Canada and the United States of America,” Pope Francis said on January 3, 2018, at his General Audience in Paul VI Hall at the Vatican, his first of the New Year.

“May each of you, and your families, cherish the joy of this Christmas season, and draw near in prayer to the Prince of Peace who has come to dwell among us. God bless you all!”
