ADDRESS OF JOHN PAUL II
Monday, 1 December 2003
Dear Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre,
I am pleased to welcome you to the Vatican today and I thank you for your good wishes and for the gift that you have presented to me on the occasion of the Twenty-fifth Anniversary of my election to the See of Peter. In these difficult times let us pray that all peoples everywhere will be strengthened in their commitment to mutual understanding, reconciliation and peace.
