Apostolic Trip of the Holy Father Francis in Colombia (6-11 September 2017) – Words of the Holy Father at the Apostolic Nunciature of Bogotá
The following is the Holy Father’s off-the-cuff greeting to a group of victims of violence: soldiers, agents and former guerrillas, who awaited him outside the apostolic nunciature of Bogotá:
Words of the Holy Father
Thank you for the field hospital.
Thank you, because the doors are open and they remain open.
Thank you for those you encourage to enter, who look from afar and want to enter but do not know how.
Thank you for accepting such ruin, for knowing that one can be left with nothing, and be unable to find a way no matter how hard
