Letter from Pope Francis

During the visit of the Papal Nuncio, and as it was Father’s Day, the children sent the Holy Father, Pope Francis a present. 

A letter from the Secretariat of State at the Vatican dated 5th July says
     “Dear Children, His holiness Pope Francis was pleased to receive your kind message and he thanks you for your framed Father’s Day greeting.  The Holy Father, in requesting your continued prayers for himself and for his ministry as Bishop of Rome, assures you of his prayers.  He sends his blessing to you and your families.
  Yours sincerely
      Bishop Anjelo Becciu

(A photo of Pope Francis was included in the letter - both are displayed in the Sacristy of St. John the Baptist Church).
