Dear Pope Francis,
today we, the women of WUCWO (World Union of Catholic Women's Organisations), pray in a special way for you and wish you a very happy and holy birthday!
The only "birthday gift" we dare to give you is the renewal of our commitment to intensify, by the grace of the Holy Spirit, our path to holiness, seeking to respond to the situations of women whose dignity is being violated.
I can assure you, dear Holy Father, that we wish to follow your teachings and example, opening our organisations to the care of human life and the planet.
Thank you, thank you very much, for your generous and fruitful daily dedication to the service of the whole Church and of the whole world.
I bid you farewell, imploring your paternal blessing,
María Lía Zervino, Servidora
