Pope Francis in Morocco: Meeting with the Discalced Carmelite nuns of Tangier

On March 31st, during his apostolic journey to Morocco, Pope Francis met at the Cathedral of Rabat with priests, religious, consecrated and the Ecumenical Council of the Churches.

Our Discalced Carmelite Sisters from the Tangier monastery were able to participate, with great joy, in this encounter with the successor of Peter, feeling accompanied and loved by the Holy Father and confirmed in the faith by him and his generous commitment in this Muslim African country.

They were able to hear how Francis recalled that a small Christian community, like that of Morocco, is not insignificant. The Pope also called for collaboration, dialogue and charity between the various Christian confessions and with Islam.

On the other hand, as can be seen in the photos, our sisters are carrying out important restoration works on the monastery, costly but absolutely necessary.
