... doniamo la speranza di ricominciare ...

Dear Friends and Benefactors,

First of all, I wish to share with you the joy of the private audience that His Holiness Pope Francis granted me last Thursday 15 April, at 11.00 am, in the Library of the Apostolic Palace.

As you can see in the photos, it was a very relaxed meeting during which I gave the 2021 Nolite Timere Calendar to the Holy Father. He seemed very pleased and interested in our work for the children of Rwanda, sponsored by His venerated predecessor Saint John Paul II.

During the audience, I had the opportunity to talk to him about the Nazareth Village that the Nolite Timere Association, thanks to the precious contribution of our benefactors, helps to support. Thanks to the subscription of long distance adoptions, in fact, we are able to provide for the education of numerous orphans and children in need.

Pope Francis encouraged the initiative and participated in the Apostolic Blessing to the members, volunteers, benefactors, staff and, above all, the children of the Nazareth Village in Mbare (Rwanda).

Dear friends,


            In this year, which has been so hard for all of us, I want my best wishes to reach you in your daily life, where your loved ones, your families and your friends are.

            Christmas reminds us that the Lord is also present, and above all, where there is sadness and suffering. And how much sadness and suffering we have witnessed in recent months due to the Covid-19 pandemic!

            The profound meaning of Christmas - what we really celebrate during this feast - is the love of the Lord, His constant availability: the Lord is always faithful, even when we fail to perceive Him and are distracted by the fatigue of our life. The Lord does not forget us, He does not leave us, He is present. Every year, Christmas reminds us of His being with us. Jesus who comes presents His face to us, the face of the Lord who loves us, who seeks us, who comes to meet us and takes charge of our difficulties.
