Pentecost greetings from St Francis

Pentecost is associated with the Gospel message being proclaimed in all the languages of the world, so here are greetings in some of the languages represented at St Francis.  In each case, the greeting is equivalent in translation to:

In the name of Jesus, I welcome all of you.  May God bless you with peace and happiness today and for each day of the rest of your life.

These are not the only languages represented at St Francis.  I am aware of at least the following:

  • German
  • Italian,
  • Sri Lankan, and
  • Swazi.

If your language is not here, please send me (mikegomy@gmail.com)  a translation of the greeting above, and tell me what language it is.  I’ll add it to this page.  If you can send a recording of the message, all the better.
