"I greet in particular the group and the Delegation of the Civil Guard, the military's archbishop, the Minister of the Interior and the Director General of the Corps. I pray that Our Lady of the Pillar, may give you spiritual strength so you may carry out your service with  Spain's society.”

At the end of the general audience, the delegation greeted the Pope. In fact in the past, he has even worn the famous military hat these guards wear. This time around the group gave the Pope a gift, which combined Our Lady of the Pillar with their very own trademark.

This meeting with the Pope puts the icing on the Jubilee Year. The Civil Guard started celebrating this anniversary by placing their highest decoration medal before the Image of Our Lady of the Pillar.
