Amongst the Princes of the Holy Church

This morning, Rev. Fr. Philippe Laguérie, our General Superior, was at the side of the Princes of the Church to attend the consistory during which the Holy Father created 24 new cardinals. It was a very beautiful and moving ceremony, a first for Fr. Laguérie. It was also an occasion to cross some French cardinals such as His Eminence Cardinal Vingt-trois and His Eminence Cardinal Barbarin.
