Pilgrimage to Mauritius: Praying in St Louis Cathedral
This month, a group of pilgrims set out to see Pope Francis in Mauritius, led by Fr Russell Pollitt SJ. The tour was headlined by The Southern Cross, Radio Veritas and Spotlight.Africa.
It was a journey of many graces, some unexpected. The pilgrims joined 100 000 people at the papal Mass on a hill overlooking Port Louis, saw the city’s historic Catholic sites, prayed at the shrine of the island’s apostle Bl Jacques-Désiré Laval, received the Eucharist at Mass, had a retreat on the beach led by Fr Pollitt—and had time for the relaxation and activities offered in the resort where they stayed.
