Lucia Mary Liando, as President, led a newly reorganized Group of our Friends in Indonesia to the 30th Anniversary Celebration of our Foundation in Rome, October 22-24, 2011. The Indonesian Group was large and many wore beautiful Indonesian ethnic costumes. They were the most beautiful group at Sala Clementina during our meeting with Holy Father Benedict XVI.
We all were very happy to see our Indonesian brothers and sisters again. Their large presence testified to the worldwide impact and vitality of the teachings of our founder, Blessed John Paul II. His teachings remain alive now more than ever.
Lucia Maria Liando was received by our Holy Father Benedict XVI, as a sign of recognition of Indonesian Catholics’ participation in the life of the Universal Church. We are grateful to them for their gift of time and energy that they bring to our activities worldwide. Thank you, and God bless you dearly.
