Venerable Brothers in the Episcopate,
1. In our mutual joy at this meeting, I offer each and every one of you my heartfelt greetings for the renewed experience of episcopal communion in our concern for all the Churches (cf. II Cor 11: 28). I offer you my embrace of peace and brotherhood in the spirit of communion that makes us feel of one heart and mind (cf. Acts 4: 32). In particular, I greet Archbishop Eterovic, the Secretary General, and thank him for his kind words.
