Pope to Middle East Pilgrims: Let Joy of His Resurrection Fill Your Lives

Wishes Arabic-speaking Pilgrims at General Audience a Happy Easter

“I give a warm welcome to the Arabic-speaking pilgrims, particularly those from the Middle East!”, said Pope Francis during the General Audience of April 12, 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, Tomorrow begins the Easter Triduum: while keeping our eyes fixed on the Passion and Death of the Lord, accept in your hearts the greatness of His love and let your lives be filled with the joy of the Resurrection.”

“Happy Easter!” he said.
