First meeting of Albanian health care workers

Dear colleagues,

I have just returned from Albania, where I attended the first meeting of Catholic (but also Greek Orthodox ) Albanian doctors and health workers at the seminary in Shkoder.  So many young people!  What a great joy and what a gift from God!  Thus began the journey of this newborn sister association of FEAMC and FIAMC. The credit goes to a young Albanian bishop Msgr. Simon Kulli, bishop of the diocese of Vau Dejes-Sape where Mother Teresa of Calcutta was born.  How many stories of suffering and persecution have I listened to with a pained heart: but now it is spring for the Albanian church!  I am very happy and I share this great joy with you!
