Official Statement on elevation of
His Holiness Pope Francis
to the See of Rome
The most small institute of the Congregation of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer rejoice in the election of our Holy Father Pope Francis.
We recognise in him the person of our highest Superior whom, by vow, we have willingly bound ourselves to obey. We pledge him our humble and filial charity.
This morning the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was offered to God in thanksgiving for his election.
God bless our Pope!

washing the feet of twelve AIDS victims.
May The Lord preserve him and give him life,
and make him blessed upon the earth :
and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.
