A dwindling community of Carmelite nuns of Luccena in Cordoba, Spain, got a call from Pope Francis at 11:45 am on New Year’s Eve. Perhaps not knowing who the caller was, they fail to pick up the phone. A surprised Pope then leaves a voicemail in Spanish before getting back in touch with them at 7:15 pm to convey his good wishes. The voicemail was interesting. Listen to it here. Scroll down for the translation.
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!
