Pope, at general audience, recalls journey to United Arab Emirates
February 06, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: “This was the first papal visit to the Arabian peninsula and took place 800 years after St. Francis of Assisi visited Sultan al-Malik al-Kamil,” Pope Francis told pilgrims in Paul VI Audience Hall on February 6 (video). “The providence of God wished to see a Pope named Francis make such a journey, and I thought often of the saint, for it helped me keep the Gospel and the love of Jesus Christ close to my heart.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
