ADDRESS OF PAUL
Saturday, 21 June 1975
Dear sons and daughters,
Once again joy for us to welcome a group of Holy Year pilgrims from Uganda, this time from the northern part of the country. We know that you have made a great effort to come to Rome, to take your place here with your brothers and sisters from other parts of the world, and thus to show forth the wonderful universality of the Church of God. We have had the occasion recently to renew all our love and affection for the Ugandan people, and we do so again today on this happy occasion.
May the Lord Jesus increase your faith and love here in Rome; may he fill you with joy-abundant and overflowing. Take our greetings back to Africa. Repeat our message to your families and all your dear ones: the Pope loves Uganda.
