Excerpt from Message

Dear Reverend Mother We had a delightful week in Switzerland visiting Lucerne and Lugano. Particularly impressed with the Black Madonna at Einsiedeln. Rome is fascinating as always. We have just come from the Mother House all are in retreat except R.M.Benziger who gave us 45 minutes of her valuable time. She looks very well and sends love to all. We had a wonderful morning in St. Peters. Mass at the tomb of St. Pius X. Audiences are very scarce but we are hoping joy at least a general one on Wednesday. Saw Mater on Saturday – love Julien & Mary Isabelle
