Meeting Pope Francis

irevelyne[Motherhouse]  Each day Pope Francis celebrates Mass in the chapel of Saint Martha House. At the end of Mass about a hundred faithful gather with him.  Then the pope greets each one.  (Cf. La Croix, April 20, 2013, p. 12)

Sister Evelyne, Superioress General of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, who had been in  Rome for the Plenary Assembly of the International Union of Superior Generals, had the privilege to participate at a Eucharist celebrated by Pope Francis on May 3 in the chapel at Saint Martha’s in the Vatican.  Sister Evelyne assured the Pope of the availability and fidelity of the Daughters of Charity.  The pope thanked her and added that he counts on the Company.
