The Blessing of Long Life

On Sunday, September 28th, Pope Francis celebrated at St. Peter’s Square the first international day of The Blessing of Long Life dedicated to the elderly and grandparents. At the request of the Holy Father, American Bible Society donated 100,000 copies of the Gospel of St. Mark published in large print and in Italian. The Scripture was distributed to all those in attendance at the Square.

In the following photos are Dr. Roy Peterson, President of ABS, and his wife Rita, greeting the Holy Father and personally giving him a copy of the Gospel of St. Mark.
