On Tuesday, September 22, the Maronite Servants of Christ the Light visited the local Catholic school Holy Family Holy Name in New Bedford.
Miss Krystal Moujabber, 5th grade teacher, invited Sr. Therese Maria to give a presentation on His Holiness, Pope Francis, in honor of his visit to the United States. Sr. Therese Maria showed the children a brief animation on the life of Pope Francis, which highlighted his birth, his calling first as a priest, then as a bishop and cardinal, and then, his election as the Pontiff and Bishop of Rome.
The children were able to learn some fun facts about Pope Francis, like how much he loves soccer and his favorite team is of course Argentina, particularly, San Lorenzo. But more than that, Sr. Therese Maria highlighted the Pope’s spirituality, particularly, his emphasis on mercy and outreach to the poor, the forgotten, the outcasts, the dejected, and the downtrodden. The children were able to learn how Pope Francis truly exemplifies Christ in radiating the Lord’s goodness and joy.
Please join us in praying for the Pope, his safety and the success of his mission as he makes his way around the United States.
