Greeting English Speakers, Pope Prays for Those Starting Studies for Priesthood

Francis Assures Future Priests of His Prayers

“I greet the English-speaking pilgrims and visitors taking part in today’s Audience, particularly the groups from England, Scotland, Denmark, Nigeria, Australia, Indonesia, New Zealand, China and the United States of America,” said Pope Francis during the Wednesday General Audience in St. Peter’s Square on October 4, 2017.

“I especially greet the new students of the Pontifical Beda College in Rome, with the assurance of my closeness in prayer as they begin their studies for the priesthood.”

The Holy Father concluded: “Upon all of you, and your families, I invoke joy and peace in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
