“Dear young friends,
I was glad to meet your group, including some Dubliners, for catechesis and Mass last week in Krakow. When I was requested by the Vatican to do so, I wondered if I would need to preach in Latin, but happily, English was sufficient!
Answering Pope Francis’ invitation, you came to Poland from various countries to learn about divine mercy, to make friends and to worship God together. I am sure that, as the Holy Father pointed out at the Vigil, you will not “confuse happiness with a sofa” but rather will “offer the best of yourselves”.
May God inspire you, through an always more personal encounter with Him Who is Love incarnate.
Signed: Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin – 1st August 2016”
