Guild President Attends Papal Mass Closing Year Of Faith

I was recently in Rome for a series of meetings with Vatican officials. It coincided that my trip was over the same weekend of the Papal Mass celebrated by His Holiness Pope Francis for the occasion of the closing of the Year of Faith. Many of you probably watched it on television. I was privileged to have a front row seat beside the altar. All of you were in my prayers. The following day I had a special Mass celebrated in St. Peter’s Basilica at the altar of Mater Ecclesiae (Mother of the Church) for the intentions of all of our members, benefactors and friends.
