On 10th April Pope Francis received superior general Brother Emili Turú in a private audience. In this interview, Brother Emili speaks about his encounter with the pontiff, who gave him a message for the Marists of Champagnat.
Why did this audience take place?
We are celebrating the bicentenary of the Institute’s foundation and, on another hand, the 22nd General Chapter will take place in September of this same year in Colombia.
Therefore, we thought it was important to ask the Pope for a message for all Marists of Champagnat on the occasion of these celebrations.
