聖座新聞室:教宗並未有計劃訪問台灣

  

2018年10月18日,聖座新聞室主任伯克在一份公告中澄清了關於再次邀請教宗訪問台灣的事,他表明這項訪問並未在研究中。以下是公告全文:

「有許多代表團前來參加教宗保祿六世和其他六位真福的封聖典禮,包括由陳建仁副總統率領的台灣代表團。在禮儀開始前,各代表團團長簡短地禮貌問候了教宗方濟各,如同類似場合中既定的禮節那樣。在如此純然宗教性質的背景下,陳副總統再次邀請教宗訪問台灣。針對這點,我可以確定這項教宗訪問並未有任何計劃。」

The Canonization of Pope Paul VI and another six Blesseds was attended by various Delegations, including one from Taiwan, led by the Deputy President, H.E. Mr. Chen Chien-jen.
Before the Holy Mass, there was a brief courtesy greeting to Pope Francis by the Heads of the Delegations, in accordance with the Protocol for such occasions.
In this context, strictly religious, the Deputy President Mr. Chen reiterated his invitation to the Pope to visit Taiwan.
In this regard, I am able to state that such a visit by the Holy Father is not being planned.
