His Eminence Cardinal Anders Arborelius, OCD has taken possession of the Title of Santa Maria degli Angeli, Rome

On December 3, 2017, our General Curia experienced the immense joy of celebrating the 25th anniversary of Fr. Saverio Cannistrà’s priestly ordination.  Our confrères from the international college of the Teresianum and the community of St. Teresa joined us for the joyful celebration.

On the evening of December 4, 2017, we were blessed by the visit of his Eminence Anders Arborelius, OCD, Cardinal Archbishop of Stockholm, Sweden.  He is the first Swedish bishop since the Reformation and his holiness Pope Francis appointed him Cardinal in Rome on June 28, 2017. The Office of Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff announced that his Eminence will take possession of the title of Santa Maria degli Angeli on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at 18.00.  Let us join this great event to thank God for the wonderful gift of our dear confrere, Cardinal Anders. In his own words: “It must be a gift of God because somehow, thanks to His providence, I met people who showed me the beauty of the faith and also religious life.”
