Pope Francis Holds Weekly Audience

On December 31st at 11.45am, Pope Francis called up the small community of the Carmelite nuns of Lucena (Cordoba, Andalusia, Spain), but they didn’t pick up the phone.  Their once-large community has now dwindled to a mere five nuns, three of which are from Argentina, which is also the pope’s home country. He left them a voicemail in Spanish which said:

“What are the nuns doing that they can’t answer [the phone]? I am Pope Francis, I wish to greet you in this end of the year, I will see if I can call you later. May God bless you!”

Listen to it here in Spanish.  According to ABC,  he managed to get a hold of them at 7:15 pm and convey his good wishes for the new year.
