“It is sad and troubling that anyone would try to resell free tickets for an event with Pope Francis as part of his pilgrimage of healing, reconciliation and hope,” said a statement Friday from Papal Visit to Canada, the office preparing for the visit.
The office cautioned the public against buying resale tickets that may not be legitimate.
Pope Francis is scheduled for a six-day visit to Canada beginning with an open-air mass at Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium on July 26. Tickets for the mass were booked within minutes of being released Wednesday.
