Aboard the Flight from Rome to Bucarest

This morning, aboard the flight to Romania, the Holy Father took time - as he normally does - to meet with the journalists who are accompanying him.

Introduced by a few words from the interim Director of the Holy See Press Centre, Alessandro Gisotti, the Pope then offered a few words to the journalists.

Greetings of the Holy Father, Pope Francis
addressed to journalists

Alessandro Gisotti
Good morning, welcome Holy Father.  We welcome our colleagues, in particular our colleagues from the Romanian media.  A particular welcome also to Mathilde Imberty from Radio France, on her final papal flight before she returns to France.  Holy Father, we are returning to Eastern Europe.  The motto for this voyage is Walking together ad it seems, according to the programme, that we will be walking and flying together a lot in these days.  This underscores your commitment, your will to meet as many people as possible, the cultural and ethnic treasures of Romania.  Please, Holy Father ...

Pope Francis
Good morning, and thank you for your company on this trip.  They say that the weather will not be good: there will be rain ... But let us hope that things will go as they did in Bulgaria, where they said the same thing and then everything was fine.  Thank you for your work, for your company.  Thank you!
