Pope Francis jokes with the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic: "I need a translator!"
Pope Francis met with Petr Fiala, Prime Minister of the Czech Republic. The Pope joked with him about the difficulties in communicating with each other.
I can't speak Czech; I need a translator!
The Czech delegation presented Pope Francis with a large reproduction of the Bible and a very special stole with the dove of peace.
It was made by Ukrainian and Czech women. They embroidered it together.
The delegation also gave the Pope a book for the Year of St. Ludmila.
For his part, Pope Francis gave them this year's message of peace and an image of St. Martin handing his cloak to a beggar.
This is relevant because at this moment you are doing the same for Ukraine.
Before departing, the group all spent a moment in prayer together.
