Rome, Friday July 1, 2016

Today we participated in the Holy Mass of the Opening of the VII° General Chapter of the Institute of the Incarnate Word, that took place in the Cathedral “Santa Margarita”, in Montefiascone, home to our International Seminary, “San Vitaliano Papa“, location for the Chapter.

H. E. R. Cardinal Angelo Sodano, Dean of the College of Cardinals, presided at the Mass as well as preached the homily. Various bishops close to the Institute of the Incarnate Word and numerous priests concelebrated.

Following the Mass, we participated in a festive lunch, and afterward, a short tour of the grounds of the Seminary.
