In a new video, Pope Francis shows how hard he’s trying to address English-speakers in their native tongue for his upcoming visit to the U.S.

“I look forward to greeting the pilgrims and the people of Philadelphia when I come for the World Meeting of Families,” he said in heavily-accented English.

Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia posted the video on his Facebook page this morning saying that the Holy Father’s “personal call to each of us and his desire to be with all during his visit to Philadelphia is deeply moving.”
