The church of the nuns burned in Egypt. The reconstruction and hope with the pope’s visit.

Mother Maria Clara Caramagno gave an interview to Zenit, in which she speaks of Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to Egypt.

In the interview, she explains the works that her congregation, the Franciscan Missionaries of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, are preparing for the important event. The congregation is present in the country with 15 colleges and more than 11,500 students.

One of these colleges, in the city of Beni Suef, was burned in 2013, and was later rebuilt by the Egyptian military.
