The day of the beatification
"I warmly welcome you all to the celebration of the beatification of Fr Richard Henkes, also in the Pallottine community. We are happy that we can celebrate the beatification with so many guests here in Limburg and with Cardinal Koch, as the Holy Father's envoy, this is a very special day for us. I would like to greet all the people watching on the screens and the radios, here in Germany, but also especially in Poland and the Czech Republic. You are all following the broadcast and in prayer we are closely united with each other, beyond all language barriers. I wish us a good contemplative service. Let us pray together for the beatification of Fr Richard Henkes and for our support in our time."
