Il cardinale di Haiti Chibly Langlois visita la ComunitaOn Friday 17 October cardinal of Haiti Chibly Langlois, the first cardinal of the Caribbean island, created by Pope Francis, visited the Community of Sant'Egidio and presided over the prayer in the basilica of St. Bartholomew on the Tiber Island, the memorial of the martyrs of the XX and XXI centuries.

"The testimony of the martyrs enlightens us and calls us to a renewed sense of the mission of the disciples of Jesus, sent to communicate the Gospel in the world" he said in his homily”. The presence of your communities in Haiti - he added - binds us in a bond of fraternity. Heartfelt thanks for the family home for children opened after the earthquake, for all you do for us and for the support and remembrance in prayer".

Marco Impagliazzo, in his address, remembered the link of the Community with Haiti and its Church, the impetus given by Pope John Paul II's visit in 1983, and expressed gratitude for the work of evangelization of the Haitian people, who found the energy to recover after so much suffering.
