Greetings of the Holy Father, Pope Francis
prior to the recitation of the Angelus

Dear brothers and sisters,

I greet you and thank you for your warm welcome here in Milan.  The clouds have gone away!  Evil tongues say that there will be rain ... I don't know, I don't see rain yet!  Thank you very much for your affection, and I ask you please to pray, to pray for me, that I might serve the people of God, serve the Lord, and do his will.  Now, I invite you to pray the Angelus with me, all together.

Angelus Domini ...
