ARABIC TO BECOME A PART OF THE POPE’S GENERAL AUDIENCE
Vatican City, (VIS) – Beginning on Wednesday 10 October, during the Holy Father’s weekly general audience, an Arabic speaker will join the other speakers who provide a summary of the papal catechises in various different languages.
In this way, in the wake of his recent trip to Lebanon and the publication of the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation “Ecclesia in Medio Oriente”, the Holy Father intends to express his perpetual concern and support for Christians in the Middle East, and to remind everyone of their duty to pray and work for peace in the region.
A couple problems I can see with this are a) the audience will be longer and b) if they end using Arabic, some Arab-speakers will take it as an insult.
Sts. Nunil0 and Alodia, pray for us!
BTW… 22 October is the Feast of Sts. Nunilo and Alodia! Start planning.
