Five women carried out the entire walk from Paris to Rome and one was able to speak to the Pope at the end of Wednesday's general audience.
At the end of a two-month pilgrimage from Paris to Rome, the mothers of priests of the association “La Voie Romaine” (“The Roman Way”) placed their request in the hands of Pope Francis, at the general audience of May 4, 2022. Satisfied with their meeting, they hope that the Pontiff will lift the restrictions on the Latin Mass imposed by the motu proprio Traditionis custodes on July 16, 2021.
The women left Paris on March 6 to travel the roughly 1,000 miles separating them from the Eternal City, to speak with the head of the Catholic Church in person. And to their happy surprise, the Holy Father seemed to be aware of their arrival.
