"I'm very happy because I saw the Pope. I wasn't able to greet him up close, but I saw him and now I'm filled with the joy and peace that the Pope transmits.”

"It has been a very nice experience for us at this audience today. We didn't know it, but when we arrived here they told us that there would be an audience. It was a great joy for us. When the Pope opened the Holy Door, it wasn't only the physical door but also the door to the hearts of all of our brothers and sisters.”

Twelve sisters arrived in Rome with their friends from the Congregation. Their visit coincided with the start of the Jubilee of Mercy. They were also able to walk through the Holy Door together. It was an experience that will stay with them.

Among the challenges the Cenacle Sisters face now is starting a university that trains nurses. But they return to their challenges with new inspiration after a visit to the Vatican.
