Papal greetings to Hungary on feast of St. Stephen

Catholic World News - August 20, 2013

As Hungary celebrated the feast of St. Stephen on August 20, Pope Francis sent greetings to the country’s leader, President Janos Ader.

“I ask God that the Hungarian people might find within themselves, and their human and spiritual heritage, the moral resources necessary in order to build a future of peace and fraternity,” the Pope wrote. He sent his blessings to the people of Hungary, who marked the national feast day with a Mass at the basilica of St. Stephen in Budapest and a procession through the city.
