Pope Francis' Message For Enthronement Of Archbishop Of Canterbury

Vatican City, 21 March 2013 (VIS) - Pope Francis has sent a message to the Most Reverend Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, on the occasion of his enthronement at Canterbury Cathedral in London, UK, this past Thursday. Archbishop Welby is the 105 Archbishop of Canterbury and the head of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

"The pastoral ministry," writes Francis, "is a call to walk in fidelity to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please be assured of my prayers as you take up your new responsibilities, and I ask you to pray for me as I respond to the new call that the Lord has addressed to me."

"I look forward to meeting you in the near future, and to continuing the warm fraternal relations that our predecessors enjoyed."
