Angelus address

Below is the Angelus Address Pope Francis delivered on June 29, 2020, the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, the patron saints of Rome.

Following the recitation of the Angelus, the Holy Father offered a thought to Patriarch Bartholomew:

“On this occasion, it is traditional for a delegation from the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople to come to Rome, but this year it is not possible due to the pandemic. Therefore, I spiritually embrace my dear brother, the Patriarch Bartholomew, in the hope that our reciprocal visits may resume as soon as possible.”
