Archbishop Pozzo reading Pope Francis’ message.

To His Eminence, Darío Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos, during this Pilgrimage to Rome by the Coetus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum during the Year of Faith, His Holiness Pope Francis wishes to extend his most cordial welcome and hopes that, during your devout passage here among the tombs of the Apostles, you will comply more closely with Our Lord as celebrated at Mass and in the public prayer of the Church, and thus receive new energy in living the life of the Gospels.

The Supreme Pontiff has called down upon you the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the maternal protection of the Mother of God, and gladly gives Your Eminence and all the Bishops, Priests, Religious, and faithful who have come to this sacred celebration his Apostolic Blessing  to bring you all peace and spiritual zeal.

Archbishop Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State to His Holiness
