Wine Quotes: Pope Francis I

BRAZIL-POPE-WYD-ROUSSEFF

The 26th of July, to a crowd in Rio de Janeiro, Pope Francis I utilized some aspects of an Italian wine proverb to bless the youth of the world, expressing hope…:

“Che noi si possa essere come il buon vino, che quando invecchia migliora: è più buono ! Il vino cattivo diventa aceto. Che noi si possa essere come il buon vino. Che noi si possa invecchiare con sapienza, per poter trasmettere sapienza”.

meaning: “That we can be like good wine, when it ages it improves: it’s better! Bad wine becomes vinegar.  That we can be like good wine.  That we can age with wisdom, in order to pass on wisdom.”
