Pope extended his blessings to Belarusians


The head of the Roman Catholic Church greeted the Belarusian nation.

“Asking for a God’s blessing for the whole nation, I pray that the God Almighty gives all of you wellbeing and peace,” the traditional telegram sent by the Pontiff to Lukashenka reads.

The plane with Pope Francis on board was flying over the territory of Belarus on August 13, 2014 at about 7 p.m. EN route to South Korea the head of the Roman Catholic Church flew over 11 countries: Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Slovakia, Poland, Belarus, Russia, Mongolia, China and, finally, South Korea proper.
