The arrival the Holy Father to our country next January 2018 has filled our heart with joy and hope. All the faithful and people of good will must and want to be ready for his visit and be prepared spiritually for the great reception all Peruvians will give to Pope Francis. Thus, we will be ready to receive the Holy Father and welcome the testimony of faith and hope he is bringing to our country in the name of the Lord Jesus.
We hope that the Pope’s visit and his message to all Peruvian, full of warmth, tenderness and testimony of life, will contribute to increase the people’s faith and renew ourselves for a better life experience. The Catholic Church shows its gladness and happiness for the visit of the Pontiff Supreme because one of the pillars of our church is evangelization, which is done to carry God’s message around the world. Following this principle in an exemplary way, Pope Francis travels to different countries taking with him a message of faith, joy and hope.
In January 2018 Pope Francis will come to Peru to visit the cities of Lima, Trujillo and Madre de Dios; but we know that his kind presence will widespread along the country and will enlighten each corner of the heart of the Peruvian faithful. This is why we are so glad about his arrival.
May the Lord of Miracles, with the intercession of Our Lady of Mercy and the Peruvian saints, Saint Rose of Lima and Saint Martin of Porres, pour out their blessings in each of you and in every Peruvian home along the territory as well as our countrymen living abroad.
