Message of Benedict XVI to the MI
"You have a great model of holiness, professionalism and humility. The Church needs your help very much, so I ask you ‘not to give up’ [in Italian “non mollare” - the Pope emphasized the strong sense that this word has in the Italian language”], to move forward with confidence and hope. Your charism is relevant for today, so renew your dedication and your enthusiasm. May the Blessed Virgin and St. Maximilian help you to be zealous missionaries of the love and mercy of Jesus Christ. Pray, pray for me and for the Church in this time of purification. I thank you for your loyalty to the Church and I accompany you with my prayers. I bless you and all the people who are the recipients of your apostolate." Benedict XVI
