On September 7, 2013, Mr. and Mrs. Pliauzer of Buenos Aires, friends of our Religious Family, were able to participate in the Holy Mass with the Holy Father in the Chapel of the Domus Sanctae Martae at the Vatican.

In anticipation of the possibility of greeting His Holiness personally, they had prepared a special gift for the Pope Francis.

The moment came, and they gave him a Cross of Matará on behalf of the Servants of the Lord. They told the Holy Father that this Cross was sent by the Servidoras, who were praying for him very much.

The Holy Father thanked them and said that he knew of the sisters, who were working a great deal and very well. Mr. Rallys Pliauzer mentioned the Servants of the Lord present in Aleppo, Syria, referring to the difficulty of this mission. The Holy Father nodded.
