Pope Francis: Gisotti, trip to Mozambique, Madagascar and Mauritius from 4 to 10 September

“Welcoming the invitation of the respective heads of state and bishops”, Pope Francis will make an apostolic visit to Mozambique, Madagascar and Mauritius from 4 to 10 September 2019, visiting the cities of Maputo in Mozambique, Antananarivo in Madagascar and Port Louis in Mauritius. The Holy See Press Office ad-interim director Alessandro Gisotti revealed this today, adding that the “programme for the visit will be released in due time”. “Hope, peace and reconciliation” is the motto for the Pope’s visit to Mozambique, while “Sower of peace and hope” is the motto for his trip to Madagascar, which is represented by the traveller’s palm “Ravinala” and the baobab tree, symbolising a land of missionary disciples and witnesses to the faith in Jesus Christ even unto martyrdom, of which the saints are a sublime expression. Finally, “Pilgrim of peace” is the motto for his visit to Mauritius, which the organizers would like to be “peaceful and positive”.
