0.06.2021: The Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany under the leadership of Sr Carmella, the Delegation Superior, along with the Bethany sisters from Vatican, Italy, Germany and France had a special audience with the Holy Father Pope Francis on 30 June 2021.












This was a unique gift offered to the Sisters on the occasion of the Centenary of the Congregation. They had also the privilege of participating in the Eucharistic sacrifice officiated by the Pope. In addition to his blessings on the Sisters, the Pope also prayed blessings on Bethany Congregation that is celebrating its Centenary of its foundation on 16 July 2021. “The moments of conversing with the Pope were really ecstatic” shared the sisters. The Pope requested the prayers of the sisters for his personal intention. Sr Carmella, the Delegation Superior of the Delegation Abroad, Sr Lucy Maria, one of her Councillors, and a few sisters from Germany, Italy and Vatican were represented. Sisters sang the Bethany Anthem and posed for photographs with him. The Sisters were glad to offer him mementos and other gifts from India. The Pope blessed the portrait of Fr Founder, Mgr Raymond Mascarenhas, which the Sisters had taken to be blessed. As a token of love, appreciation, gratitude, and joy each sister was given a Rosary by the Holy Father. Rev Fr. Hailemikael BERAKI HASHO, the Rector of the Collegio Ethiopic, where Bethany sisters are rendering their service made this event possible supported by Sr Maggie, the Superior of Bethany community in Vatican.
