The Holy Father invites you to join the consecrated women and men of the Diocese of Spokane for Mass with Bishop Thomas Daly on November 21 to express your great and tender love for them and in thanksgiving for the Lord’s gift of their vocations for the Church and for the world. “In a special way I would like to express my esteem and my gratitude to the religious women of the United States. What would the Church be without you? Women of strength, fighters, with that spirit of courage which puts you in the front lines in the proclamation of the Gospel. To you, religious women, sisters and mothers of this people, I wish to say ‘thank you,’ a big thank you…and to tell you that I love you very much” (Pope Francis,
Homily during Vespers with Priests and Religious).
