Rome (Italy). On 4 July  2021, the Holy See Press Office announced the admission of Pope Francis to the Agostino Gemelli Polyclinic in Rome for a scheduled surgery.

The Mother General of the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, Sr. Yvonne Reungoat, expressing her closeness to Pope Francis, invites all the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, the young people, and the Educating Communities to join in prayer so that  he may soon resume his  health to continue his mission  as Shepherd.

The Message of Mother Yvonne Reungoat

«Today, Sunday 4 July, His Holiness Pope Francis was hospitalized at the Agostino Gemelli Polyclinic in Rome where he will undergo surgery for a symptomatic diverticular stenosis of the colon.

This communication learned from the Vatican Press Office, unites us as an Institute in prayer for Pope Francis so that the intervention is resolved well and that he can recover his health, and  continue his mission as Father and Shepherd with the strength, courage, and love that characterize it.

I invite you, dear sisters, to pray and offer some small sacrifices, also involving the young and adults, to raise to the Father a single chorus of requests for the speedy recovery of the Vicar of Jesus, with the same love that our Founder had for the Pope.

May Mary Help of Christians be beside him with her maternal and comforting presence».

Rome, 4 July 2021

Sr. Yvonne Reungoat

Superior General of the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians


  1. Mi unisco a tutte le suore, Figlie di Maria Ausiliatrice, prego con Maria perché Papa Francesco possa continuare la Sua santa missione ed essere buon Pastore.

  2. Querida Madre Yvonne, estamos em união de preces pela pronto restabelecimento do Papa Francisco. Ele é para nós uma grande seta a nos indicar a direção para a Igreja atual ser a Igreja segundo o Coração de Jesus, o Filho de Deus.

  3. Pope Francis has gifted the Philippines in so many ways but especially with his pastoral visit in 2015 and the Eucharistic Celebration in Rome for the 500th anniversary of Catholicism in our country this year 2021. May our Blessed Mother and all our Salesian Saints intercede for his good health and safe recovery.

  4. Querida madre, continuamos unidas em comunhão de orações pelo querido Papa Francisco.
