Pope receives Jesuit school alumni

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis received about 30 alumni from Jesuit schools in Uruguay in a noon-hour audience on Saturday. Many children, to whom he referred as “a promise and a hope”, were also present for the cordial meeting. He commented on his memories of Uruguay.

“I do not know when a trip will be planned there,” he said. “Certainly not before 2016. However, what is certain is that if I visit Argentina, I will have to visit Chile and Uruguay, all three.”

He also asked for prayers, elaborating: “Here, the people are very good. They are good companions and everyone works together. The work, however, is plentiful. Therefore, pray for me, for my collaborators, that we may move forward. Thank you.”
