VATICAN— A small delegation of representatives from the papal charity foundation, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), stood witness to Pope Francis’ blessing on Sunday of the icon of the Our Lady of Sorrows, Consoler of Syrians.
The icon was made in August by Fr. Spiridon Kabbash, a Greek Orthodox priest from Homs in Syria.
Present in this initiative is the organization’s National Director for the Philippines, Jonathan Luciano.
