Yesterday morning, Monday April 13th 2015, at St. Martha’s House, all the team from the Emmanuel School of Mission (ESM) in Rome met with the Holy Father.

Charles Rochas (Director of the ESM) had the pleasure of concelebrating morning Mass with Pope Francis, in the presence of several of the faithful, including all the other members of the ESM team: Gerro Nap, Anna McDougall and Kathleen Lahiffe. ‘The Pope listened attentively to our presentation of the ESM and the work of the Emmanuel Community in the schools of evangelization’, testified one of the participants. ‘He then invited us to pray for him before spontaneously and paternally blessing us all as a team. Thank you Lord, thank you for the so paternal and loving encouragement of the Holy Father! ‘
