A Letter to the Pope

Like most other head of states or people in similarly important positions, Grand Duke Henri has sent a letter to the new Pontifex Maximus speaking for himself, his wife and the whole of Luxembourg. In case you have been living under a rock for the last day or so, yesterday evening the papal conclave elected Argentinian Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the new Pope; he took the papal name of Francis.

In his letter, the Grand Duke congratulated Pope Francis on his election. He also expressed the appreciation that the new head of the Catholic Church comes from Latin America. Grand Duke Henri further wished the Holy Father an enlightened and productive pontificat.

It has been announced that Pope Francis' inaugural mass will be celebrated next Tuesday in the Vatican. It seems save to assume that many members of the Grand Ducal Family like the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess or Princess Margaretha and Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein, who is his country's non-resident ambassdor to the Holy See, will be in attendance.
