Maryknoll priest Gene Toland MM  wrote the following about Pope Francis' Ted Talk:

"Take a few deep breathes and don’t let the day go by without watching this….better than a 30 day retreat, a month of sessions of therapy, or weeks of struggle to figure out how you fit into the world and what you are called to be wherever and whatever you do. Gather your friends, and children to hear words of wisdom that speak to power, the seekers, the confused and all who feel left out."

They will be staying there and working with the people on many levels to help rebuild the villages. The Peruvian Affiliates have expressed their extreme gratitude for the solidarity that Affiliates in the U.S. and around the world have shown to them.
