PASTORAL VISIT
OF HIS HOLINESS POPE BENEDICT XVI
IN POLAND

GREETING OF THE HOLY FATHER

WELCOME CEREMONY

Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, 27 May 2006

 

Dear (Franciscan) Fathers
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

During his first journey to Poland, Pope John Paul II visited this Shrine and dedicated his address to the topic of prayer. At the conclusion he said: I ask you to pray for me here during my life and after my death. Today, I wanted to pause for a moment in the Chapel of the Blessed Virgin Mary and, with gratitude, to pray for him as he requested. Following the example of John Paul II, I also turn to you, kindly asking that you pray for me and for all the Church. 

Blessing in Latin
