May 1 was another great day for the people in the diocese of Jacmel who gathered to celebrate the Eucharist with the Cardinal. There were so many people, with all the priests and religious of the diocese gathered together in one place. Once again it was as if the Pope was coming. The celebration took place in the newly-built conference center in the middle of Jacmel. This was the first time we had been in this building. Cardinal Chibly reminded us that we are called to be about the mission of Jesus Christ; we have a universal call to rebuild the Church, especially here in Haiti. He reminded us that Pope Francis has a special love for the poor. We may be poor physically, but spiritually we have our faith community to proclaim the Good News that Christ is truly risen and is in our midst. We must work and walk together! The choir and the dancing all made a joyful noise to the Lord! “>
