Benedictines Greeted by Pope Francis

As the Benedictine abbots gathered in Rome to elect a new Abbot Primate, the Benedictine Sisters and Nuns attending the Communio Internationalis Benedictinarum (CIB) were invited observers. Pope Francis greeted the gathering on September 8th but also chose to greet the participats individually. Sister Lynn Marie comments about the experience on her Facebook posting:"This is the highlight of my meetings in Rome!...The Holy Father is everything you have heard about him: Joy-filled, kind, humble, a lovely man."
