APOSTOLIC JOURNEY TO MEXICO AND THE REPUBLIC OF CUBA
(MARCH 23-29, 2012)

ADDRESS IMPROVISED BY THE HOLY FATHER BENEDICT XVI
ON SUNDAY EVENING
IN FRONT OF MIRAFLORES COLLEGE

Sunday, 25March 2012

 

Dear friends, thank you very much for your enthusiasm. I am so happy to be with you. I have accomplished many journeys but I have never been received with so much enthusiasm. I will bring with me, in my heart, the impression of these days. Mexico will always be in my heart. I can say that for years I have been praying every day for Mexico, but in the future I will pray much more. Now I can understand why Pope John Paul II said: “I feel I am a Mexican Pope”.

Dear friends, although I am very happy with this encounter you must forgive me if I leave since tomorrow will be a demanding day. I conclude this day with my blessing: May Almighty God bless you, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Buenas noches! (Good Night!)
