Pope announces upcoming meeting with children of the world
“Today here beside me, as you can see, there are five children, representing the five continents,” the Pope said adding that together with them he would like to announce that on the afternoon of 6 November, in the Paul VI Hall, he is scheduled to meet children from all over the world.
Let’s learn from boys and girls
The Pope said the event is promoted and organized by the Dicastery for Culture and Education. He explained it will be an occasion in which to reflect a common dream with its focus on the theme “Let’s learn from boys and girls,” which he said, illustrates “the desire to go back to having pure, childlike feelings because the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like little children.”
“Children teach us the pureness of relationships and the spontaneous acceptance of the stranger and respect for all creation. Dear children, I too am waiting for you all to learn from you,” he said.
