The Pope is back in the Vatican, after a weeklong spiritual retreat

2015-02-27

The Pope's weeklong Lenten Spiritual retreat, along with the Roman Curia, came to a close. Carmelite Father Bruno Secondin gave the closing remarks. 

"Hopefully the light of the cosmos can find the small cosmos of our souls. May it find room, a warm welcome and may it renew the truth we've come to know.” 

During the five day retreat, the Pope mostly sat among the rest of the Curia, but he did make it a point to thank Father Secondin for leading the retreat. 

POPE FRANCIS
"It's not easy to give spiritual exercises to priests. We're all a bit complicated, but you've managed to sow among us. May the Lord allow these seeds you've planted, to grow.” 

Amid applause, the Pope left the retreat center in the Casa Divin Maestro in the town of Ariccia. Then, he boarded the bus with everyone else, to make his way back to the Vatican. 

This marks the Pope's second Lenten retreat as Pontiff. Along with him, members of the Roman Curia also took part, to dedicate a week to prayer and reflection.
