Haiti - Religion : Tribute of Pope Francis to Sister Luisa, who died in martyrdom in Haiti (Video)
Following the attack on Saturday June 25, 2022 for theft which caused the death by bullets in Port-au-Prince of Sister Lucia Dell'Orto, little sister of the Gospel of Charles de Foucauld https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-37003-icihaiti-insecurityan-italian-nun-shot-dead.html , Pope Francis Sunday, June 26, at the end of the Angelus expressed his closeness to his loved ones and prayed for the little Haitians so that they have a better future...

Nicknamed "the angel of street children" by the Italian press, Sister Lucia Dell'Orto (65) was the pillar of "Kay Chal", "Carlo's house", a place of welcome for many young Haitians. , located in a very poor suburb of Port-au-Prince.

"We are trying to lend a hand to rebuild the values, the sense of dignity, the possibility of not being cursed, and that with the Good News, with the Gospel, God loves the Haitian people" confided Sister Lucia Dell'Orto at Radio Vatican three years after the reconstruction of the center thanks to Caritas Italy.

"Sister Lucia made her life a gift for others until martyrdom," Pope Francis said. "For 20 years, Sister Lucia was especially devoted to street children," recalled the pontiff, before entrusting his soul to God.

Pope Francis’ message for Sister Lucia Dell’Orto and Haiti :

Reacting to this tragedy, the Archbishop of Milan, Msgr. Mario Delpini, underlined the dedication of the missionaries to the poorest as well as the similarity of the death of Sister Lucia Dell'Orto, to that of Charles de Foucauld "[...] They do not go looking for dangers, but for signs of the Kingdom of God which is coming, among the poor, among those who are important only to God and are ignored by all […] The death of Sister Luisa Dell'Orto , little sister of the Gospel, leaves us tormented and disoriented, she becomes a revelation of the good she did and the holy life she lived. I associate myself, in the name of the Ambrosian Church, with the mourning of his loved ones and express the certainty that his death, so similar to the death of Charles de Foucauld, combined with the death of Jesus, can be a seed of new life for the land of Haiti and for its entry into glory".
