Just a few days ahead of his apostolic journey to Cyprus and Greece, Pope Francis has sent a video message expressing his joy in visiting “as a pilgrim to your magnificent lands blessed by history, culture, and the Gospel”.

The Pope leaves for the two nations on Thursday, December 2, for a five-day journey.

In his video message, Pope Francis expressed his joy over the upcoming visit to Cyprus and Greece. His visit “in the name of the Gospel” will follow in the footsteps of the first great missionaries, especially the Apostles Paul and Barnabas, he said, noting the importance of going to the origins of the Church in order to “rediscover the joy of the Gospel”.
