A letter to the Archbishop from the Vatican…
“His holiness Pope Francis has asked me to acknowledge the message of good wishes which you sent to him in your own name and on behalf of the priests, religious and lay faithful of the Archdiocese of Adelaide following his election to the See of Peter. He is grateful for the devoted sentiments which you expressed he thanks you for the support of your prayers as he begins his ministry as Chief Pastor of the universal Church. Assuring you and those entrusted to your pastoral care of a remembrance in his own prayers, the Holy Father cordially imparts his Apostolic Blessings as a pledge of joy and peace in the Lord.
With every good wish, I am
Yours sincerely in Christ.”
Pope Francis' episcopal motto is "miserando atque eligendo" (lowly, yet chosen).
"We must not believe the Evil One when he tells us that there is nothing we can do in the face of violence, injustice and sin."Pope Francis
