Angelus Greetings

VATICAN CITY, OCT. 16, 2006 (Zenit) - Here is the brief greeting in English Benedict XVI gave Sunday at the end of the canonization Mass of four saints celebrated in St. Peter's Square, and before reciting the Angelus.

The Holy Father did not give an Angelus address.

* * *

I am happy to greet all the English-speaking pilgrims present today, especially those who have come for the canonization of Mother Théodore Guérin, foundress of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary of the Woods. The Church rejoices in the four new Saints raised to the altars today. May their example inspire us and their prayers obtain for us guidance and courage. Invoking God’s abundant blessings upon you, I wish you all a pleasant Sunday!
