Pope sends telegram to Georgia’s president

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Sunday sent a telegram to Georgia’s president, expressing his gratitude for the hospitality he received during his two-day pastoral visit to the Caucasus nation.

The telegram was sent to President Giorgi Margvelashvili while the Pope was in flight on his way to Azerbaijan to begin the second leg of his journey.


See the text of Pope Francis’ telegram to the president of Georgia:


His excellency Giorgi Margvelashvili

President of the republic of Georgia



As I leave Georgia for my pastoral visit to Azerbaijan, I express my heartfelt appreciation to your excellency and the beloved people of the nation for your generous welcome and hospitality.  Upon all of you I willingly invoke God’s abundant blessings of peace and prosperity.
