Nuns launch social media campaign for ailing Sister to meet Pope Francis

2015-08-21

Pope Francis will have a busy schedule when he comes to the United States in September, but one group of nuns is hoping he can find time to make someone's dream come true.

Sister Noel is an 88-year-old nun with the Maryknoll Sisters, a group of American nuns who focus on charity work. She has been a nun since the Pope was a child in Argentina.


She suffers from a rare disease that affects the movement of her arms, legs and face. She said, "The highest priority on my bucket list is meeting the Pope, it would be a dream come true.” 

The group launched a social media campaign to make her dream a reality. The campaign has been covered by local media in New York, and the Facebook post has received more than 70,000 views.

Although she can no longer speak, Sister Noel continues living a productive life of service. She said that she tries to bring "comfort and joy” to the other nuns whom she lives with.
