“I give a warm welcome to the Arabic-speaking pilgrims, particularly those from the Middle East!”, said Pope Francis during his General Audience of June 7, 2017.
This morning’s General Audience was held at 9:30 in St. Peter’s Square, where the Holy Father Francis met with groups of pilgrims and faithful from Italy and from all over the world.
The Pope spoke in Italian, translated immediately into Arabic by one of his collaborators in the Roman Curia: “Dear brothers and sisters, in any situation of life, we must not forget that we will never stop being children of God, the children of a Father who loves us and awaits our return.”
“Even in the worst situation of life,” the Pope underscored, “God waits for us and wants to embrace us.”
“May the Lord bless you all!” he said.
