You are gathered in Rome
for the Order’s World Consulta
which takes place every five years
to reflect on the situation
of the Catholic Community
in the Holy Land,
to evaluate the achievements
and determine directives
for the future. [...]
I thank you for coming
and wish to express my appreciation
and my encouragement
for the initiatives of solidarity
that the Order fosters in the Holy Places
and that in recent years
have been further developed
and broadened.
