On Saturday, June 25th, after having completed the Spiritual Exercises, the majority of the Chapter Mothers took a pilgrimage to San Giovanni Rotondo, home to the relics of P. Pio of Pietrelcina. They were able to pray before the incorrupt body of the saint, as well as visit the surrounding areas related to his life and his works. The mothers were also able to visit the grotto of St. Michael the Archangel at Monte Gargano.
Today, in the morning, a group of mothers also participated in the first Masses of the newly ordained priests of the IVE, in the chapel of the Seminary of St. Vitaliano in Montefiascone (VT).
In the afternoon, all the Chapter Mothers returned to the Procura, where tomorrow they will begin the Chapter sessions.
