several people asking for translation of the pope speech  : Majesty We thank you words noble and high that you just made. If Your Majesty will express his satisfaction to be here, we can assure that it is for us a real joy to welcome him into our home. Long ago, Majesty - We say in the sincerity of our hearts - that we were expecting your visit. And that's why we were allowed during our interview in Geneva last year, formulate personally before you hope to see you again. Your presence is indeed significant in many ways. First, because Ethiopia old and very special relationship with the Holy See. The foundation of the monastery and the church of St. Stephen of the Abyssinians, at the head of the Vatican Basilica, goes high in the annals of Christian Rome. And the fact of his fidelity to a long tradition, Ethiopia is today being the only nation in the world with an ecclesiastical college in the territory of Vatican City. This is indeed the will of Pius XI that in the constitution of the small independent state territory bounded by the Lateran Pacts, the community received on the Vatican hill, a modern and dignified office of your country: the College Ethiopia today. A successor Pius XII was reserved satisfaction to host a permanent representative of your country to the Holy See. He himself wanted to be represented in Addis Ababa in 1955, during the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Coronation of your Majesty. Recently Finally, the Representative of Ethiopia to the Holy See assumed the rank of Ambassador, as the Apostolic Internonciature Addis Ababa was elevated to Nunciature. That is to say the length and strength of the links between your homeland to the Holy See. We would be but the truth if we were not doing here an explicit reference to what your Majesty personally has done and continues to do for the Catholic Church and its institutions. We know especially how generously she became interested in the fate of the University of Asmara and many other Catholic foundations religious or educational purposes. This active benevolence of Your Majesty calls from Us a sense of gratitude, which we are happy to give here expression. It is for us the precious guarantee of a growing cordiality between the civil authority and the Catholic hierarchy in Ethiopia. It is also, for Ethiopian Catholics insurance for the solution of issues that matter to heart, especially the rapprochement with the Ethiopian Church. The solicitude of your Majesty goes well beyond the borders of his country. She joined the Nôtre on land that interests cry out to all humanity: the great cause of peace between nations and the acceleration of development in the Third World. That we be allowed to pay tribute publicly since the opportunity is given to us, the contribution of your Majesty on many circumstances this double cause. Your Majesty has shown how it is sensitive to the role of moral and spiritual values ​​in a world where brute force sometimes seems to want to threaten to overwhelm everything. God bless the efforts of Your Majesty in this area and allow, after the fortieth anniversary of his coronation, the opportunity to deploy a long time his energies to his country of service, respecting human rights and understanding between its peoples, will find the paths of progress and peace. It is the hope that We are wholeheartedly thanking Your Majesty again his visit, which we honor and invoke upon his person, the Imperial family, the religious and civil authorities of his country and any dear Ethiopian nation, the most abundant divine blessings.

HIS Majesty speaks from the heart, but the pope he already had something wrote up he was reading from, no heart.

@Tobijahking the language is france not latin 
i can't believe how the non-black media, namely BBC, Voice-Of-America..... penetrate the Ethiopian people to believe that the Emperor stole money form his country and many more lies. I hope God will make them pay for their evil work.
