Hear Pope Francis Speaking English

Via Rocco de Palma:

For all the waves the 266th Bishop of Rome has made across the Anglophone world these last seven months, perhaps the most remarkable thing is that all of it’s happened without Papa Bergoglio speaking a single word in English.

Late last week, that changed when Pope Francis delivered a video message for the Conference on the New Evangelization in Manila.

Take a look/listen.

    So if Pope Francis speaks English why will the majority of his appearances in USA be in Spanish? Whose decision was that?
