APOSTOLIC JOURNEY
OF HIS HOLINESS JOHN PAUL II
TO PARIS, ON THE OCCASION OF THE
12th WORLD YOUTH DAY
(AUGUST 21-24, 1997)

GREETING OF POPE JOHN PAUL II
TO THE YOUNG PEOPLE GATHERED IN FRONT OF
THE APOSTOLIC NUNCIATURE OF PARIS

Sunday, 24 August 1997

 

Unfortunately I have to leave Paris, after spending a wonderful Youth Day here. But one small consolation remains, that is, I am returning to Rome for the feast-day of St Louis, St Louis of the French.

So France is accompanying me to Rome. In the name of this great saint, St Louis, King of the French, I would like to thank everyone who helped prepare the World Youth Day.

I am very grateful, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay here in Paris, France. In Rome we will do what we can. Goodbye.
