At the conclusion of Wednesday’s General Audience, Pope Francis asks for prayers for his weekend visit to Malta from 2-3 April, while thanking all those involved in the preparations.

Pope Francis spoke about his Apostolic Journey coming up this weekend to the Mediterranean island of Malta.

The Pope said he looks forward to visiting that “luminous land” following in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul, who was warmly welcomed there after being shipwrecked at sea on his way to Rome.
