ADDRESS OF JOHN PAUL II
TO THE PILGRIMS
FROM THE ANGLICAN DIOCESE OF ROCHESTER

Monday, 25 October 2004 

 

Dear Friends from the Anglican diocese of Rochester,

I am pleased to greet you as you undertake a pilgrimage from Rome to England in celebration of the fourteen-hundredth anniversary of the ordination of Saint Justus, first bishop of Rochester. You are following in the footsteps of Saint Augustine of Canterbury and Saint Justus, who were sent by my great predecessor Saint Gregory to preach the Gospel in your country. May your journey be an occasion of spiritual enrichment and an encouragement to persevere on the path towards full communion. I accompany you with my prayers and my blessing.
