Dear Brothers and Sisters,
A few days having passed since my nomination as the Holy Father's Special Delegate to your Order, I wish to offer each of you my cordial greetings. Above all, I convey to you the blessing of the Pope and the assurance that he has the good of the Order at heart, as well as its peace and spiritual renewal. For this he is praying ardently.
From the moment the Holy Father entrusted me with this appointment, I have sought to be close to you in prayer and to deepen my knowledge of your history and presence in the world today. Your witness to charity, which has shone forth since your founding, is truly edifying.
