ADDRESS OF THE HOLY
FATHER PAUL VI
We are happy express Our to reply to your so gracious greeting, and to best wishes to Your Highness and to all the authorities of the Island.
We are truly happy to have been able to have this meeting with you
and thank God for it!
We greet especially Our brothers in the faith, the sons and
daughters of the Catholic Church. If you are so pleased to see the Pope, rest
assured that We too are very happy. The Lord permits Us to become for a few
hours a true missionary - as was Saint Peter whose lowly successor We are; Our
office as father of all the faithful demands this of Us. May this meeting
strengthen your faith and increase your love, the sign by which the true
disciples of Jesus Christ are recognized.
