The Confirmation class from St. Gabriel’s, Saddle River, NJ, had a bake sale to raise money to buy new black shoes for our kids. On Saturday, we brought our first group to the market to get new black shoes for school and church.
In the afternoon, they wanted to go with us for Mass at the Missionaries of Charity. Of course, they wanted to wear their new shoes. 😉 After Mass we visited the little children and babies for which the Sisters care.
One day the children came and told us that they saw Pope Francis on TV, and they said they liked him very much. They asked if Pope Francis would come to Haiti. We simply said, “Why don’t you invite him?” The next day the children started to come with letters for the Holy Father. In the letters, they invited him to Jacmel, telling him how beautiful Haiti is. They also wrote about their lives and their need for help. They thanked him for sending us here, and asked him to help us to help them.
We sent the letters with some pictures to the Vatican.
