Rome

▪ According to the long Church tradition during the Consistory on 28 of June, on Vigil of the Solemnity St. Peter and Paul, in Rome, Pope Francis created 14 new cardinals from 11 countries and inducted them as members of the body of cardinals known as the College of Cardinals. With joy we participated in this unique event, and later we all had the opportunity to meet and greet the  new Cardinals personally. The next day, on Friday evening, there was another great celebration in the Vatican when about 280 poor people were invited to a dinner by a newly inducted Cardinal Konrad Krajewski (from Poland), the official almsgiver of the Pope. The dinner was prepared by Vatican cooks. To the surprise of all, the Holy Father came unexpectedly, dined with the poor and spent about two hours chatting with them as if in a family, listening to their stories that often told of suffering but also of hope. Among the many volonteers and close collaborators of Card. Krajewski, who were serving the poor was our own  Sr. Hanna Kiedrowska, SAC, a cook from the Procura General, who since the Holy Year of Mercy is involed in the service to the poor/apostolate.

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
