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".
