Next week, the Pope embarks on a historic six day journey to Myanmar and Bangladesh and earlier today, he sent a video message of greetings to the people of Bangladesh as he prepares to visit that nation from November 30th to December 2nd. His visit to Bangladesh comes as the second leg of a journey that also takes him first to Myanmar from November 27 to 30. I have that video message for you now.
Earlier this week, the Pope also sent a message to the people of Myanmar where he expressed his wishes, to encourage every effort to construct harmony and cooperation in service of the common good. “I am coming to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ" the Pope said, "a message of reconciliation, forgiveness, and peace”.
We will be broadcasting the event of the Pope’s trip next week so be sure to keep your eye on our website for upcoming details.
