PASTORAL VISIT
OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI
TO NAPLES

LUNCHEON ADDRESS OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI

Archdiocesan Seminary at Capodimonte, Naples
Sunday, 21 October 2007

 

Before we say goodbye, I would like once again to offer a cordial greeting to each one of you, with whom I have had the joy of sharing this festive moment.

Once again, I thank Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, Pastor of this Archdiocese, whom the Lord has given me the opportunity to visit today, and through him I renew the expression of my sincere gratitude for the welcome given to me in this style of instant warmth typical of the Neapolitans. I also greet the other Cardinals, the Bishops who have come to spend this day of celebration with us and everyone present.

A "thank you" to those who prepared this friendly lunch with care and served it professionally could not be missing. Thank you for having gladdened us with a pleasing and tasty meal.

As I take my leave of you, I would like to assure everyone of my remembrance in prayer and I invoke upon you and your loved ones an abundance of God's Blessings. Thank you! Thanks to you all and best wishes for this important meeting!
