Following his custom every Wednesday, Pope Francis presided at the General Audience in St. Peter's Square, which is attended by thousands of pilgrims from all over the world. This time, among the groups in attendance were the participants of the Univ Forum, to whom the Pope dedicated a few words after greeting them in Italian:
“Cari pellegrini di lingua italiana benvenuti! Sono lieto di accogliere i partecipanti al 50° Congresso per studenti universitari, promosso dalla Prelatura dell’Opus Dei, dedicato alla riflessione sul tema del mondo in movimento.” (Dear pilgrims, I am pleased to welcome the participants of the 50th Congress for university students promoted by the Opus Dei Prelature, this year dedicated to reflection on the subject of the world in movement.)
The students thanked this welcoming gesture of the Holy Father, giving him a vociferous ovation.
