The value of the unseen

· Pope Francis to Italian diplomatic personnel ·

Pope Francis expressed sentiments of gratitude and appreciation to diplomatic personnel from the Republic of Italy and the Italian Embassy to the Holy See for their often unseen yet very valuable work. The audience took place on Friday morning, 20 December, in the Clementine Hall. “Through your service,” the Holy Father said, “you are in a position to promote the culture of encounter. You are diplomatic officials, and all of your work aims at ensuring that representatives from nations, international organizations and institutions come together in the most profitable way. How important this service is! The more visible, ceremonial aspect of your work is ordered to the unseen, to the growth of positive relations based on mutual understanding, respect and the common search for paths of development and peace”.
