And I am also very grateful for this cordial and fraternal encounter this morning. Papa emerito, son of our diocese, is wide awake in conversation – even when his physical strength is failing. He is also a close observer of the situation of the Church in Germany and, above all, a faithful prayer warrior for us in Germany and in our diocese.

    nam non vincit nisi veritas: victoria veritatis est caritas.
