ADDRESS OF THE HOLY FATHER PAUL VI
TO A GROUP OF AMERICAN VISITORS

Saturday, 25 September 1976

 

We bid a warm welcome to our American visitors. We hope that your journey will not only be an interesting and enjoyable experience, but also an enriching one. Enriching in the fullest sense. We do not wish you merely the riches that pass, the riches that at times may even be an obstacle to true fulfilment. Our deepest, most human aspirations go beyond all that the temporal world can offer us. We grow to our full stature only when we enter into a right relationship with God and with others. These are the riches we pray God to give you. They cannot be lost or stolen, and they never pass away.
