The Sisters of Santa Rita Abbey
The Sisters of Santa Rita Abbey work near Sonoita and anxiously awaited the news of the new pope and hope that he will help them bring light to a sometimes very dark world. When asked about Pope Francis, Mother Victoria said, "What a momentous day! He is a man of simplicity with a gospel preference for the poor. It is our deepest prayer that he will be a true pastor to the Church and to the world, who will reach out with the love of Christ to all people."
