ANGELUS: BLESSED JOHN PAUL II AND PILGRIMAGE TO ASSISI

VATICAN CITY, 23 OCT 2011 (VIS) - Following this morning's Mass for the canonisation of Guido Maria Conforti, Luigi Guanella and Bonifacia Rodriguez de Castro, the Pope prayed the Angelus from the atrium of the Vatican Basilica, with faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square.

"May the example and intercession of these shining figures encourage everyone to a renewed commitment to live their faith in Christ to the full, and to bear witness to that faith in the various areas of society", he said.

Turning then to address Polish pilgrims, he recalled how on 22 October, "together with the diocese of Rome and the Church in Poland, we celebrated the liturgical memory of Blessed John Paul II". Finally, he invoked the Blessed Virgin to intercede for "the Day of reflection, dialogue and prayer for peace and justice in the world: a pilgrimage to Assisi twenty-five years after the pilgrimage called by Blessed John Paul II".
