After visiting a community of Jesuits in Rome this weekend, Pope Francis joked about his upcoming trip to Canada, from July 24-30.
In a video posted by Congolese Jesuit Jean-Pierre Bodjoko on July 10, the Holy Father is seen saying goodbye to a group of Jesuits, accompanied by the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Father Arturo Sosa.
🇻🇦🔵 Grazie Santo Padre (@Pontifex_fr) della sua visita nella comunità dei suoi confratelli. Merci Saint-Père de nous avoir rendu visite ce dimanche. Vous n'oubliez jamais vos confrères SJ. 🙏@antoniospadaro @Presidence_RDC @TataCardinal @TinaSalama2 @radiookapi @VOAAfrique pic.twitter.com/zxYMmGK9le— Jean-Pierre Bodjoko (@JPBodjoko) July 10, 2022
In the video, the pope can be seen walking with some difficulty and leaning on a cane, but does not lose his sense of humor. It can then be seen that he shakes hands with one of those present and says, with some surprise, "I didn't know him, he cut his beard.”
