"Why am I here today? I'm here to say thank you. I know these past days, tomorrow marks one month since I was elected, you have all worked overtime, putting in a lot of extra hours. It's a job that really can't be repaid because you've worked from the heart. This can only be paid with a heartfelt 'thank you very much.' This is why I wanted to personally come here and thank you, every one of you,  for all the work you've done.   From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”

This Vatican department, which is led by the Secretary of State, includes priests, religious and lay people who assist the Pope in governing the Church.
