ADDRESS OF PAUL
Friday, 13 June 1975
Beloved sons and daughters from Uganda,
What profound meaning, what happy memories your visit has for us today! Your visit is one of ecclesial communion. The Church in Uganda is one with the Church in Rome and with the Church throughout the World. We are all one in Christ Jesus.
And your presence recalls our visit to your country, the many personal encounters we had, and the many addresses we made. We now renew all the sentiments we expressed on that joyous occasion.
We are, moreover, thinking of the recent ceremonies at Namugongo, and of all the parishes and dioceses in Uganda. With great affection we impart again to each of you and to all the Church in your country our special Apostolic Blessing.
