Gratitude prayer for Pope Francis

7 Agosto 2022

We thank God for the visit of Pope Francis to Canada. The Holy Father expressed, during the General Audience on Wednesday, that this visit was a “penitential like no other”. During his catechesis, Pope Francis said the main motivation was to meet indigenous peoples to express his closeness and sorrow, and ask for forgiveness for the harm done to them by the Christians in the past. He said that the journey was undertaken in Canada to write a new page.
