Jacmel welcomes Cardinal Chibly Langlois

04 May

On April 30, Jacmel was ready to welcome Haiti’s first Cardinal. The whole city, as well as people from the mountains, gathered in the streets at the entrance of the city. There was more excitement than ever because Cardinal Chibly is from Jacmel. It was as though the Pope was coming; people stood with the signs, and a musical band played while choirs sang. We stood waiting for his arrival for two hours. He finally reached the entrance of the city and walked among the crowd. He spoke to us and reminded us that we all have a mission for the universal church, especially here in Haiti. He gave us his blessing and said he looked forward to seeing us the next day as he would celebrate Mass for Jacmel’s feast, the Feast of St. Joseph and Sts. Philip and James. After that he drove through the town of Jacmel, greeting all the people. It truly was a great day for Jacmel. We also learned that, because of the feast, there would be no school or work for two days. br />
