Vilnius Archbishop Gintaras Grušas says that Pope Francis, who plans to visit Lithuania next year, would give strength to people and help them find a way out of difficult situations.
Grušas helped to organize the first, and so far only, papal visit to Lithuania by Pope John Paul II in 1993.
"John Paul II came to strengthen people, he saw our wounds, difficulties and he came to fortify people. I believe that Francis, if he comes, would also come with the same goal -- he would come to strengthen us in our difficulties," he told reporters on Wednesday.
