HER EXCELLENCY CRISTINA FERNÁNDEZ DE KIRCHNER
PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF ARGENTINA
BUENOS AIRES

Cristina,

In this very particular moment, I wish to ensure my presence through prayer for you, and for the full restoration of your health. Through these words, I ask that you be aware of my presence. I assure my prayers and closeness. I ask the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Lujan, to bestow strength upon you, to keep your hopes high and to ensure that you can once again return to your daily responsibilities. I also remember your relatives, in these harsh circumstances, as well as the attending medical staff, and ask the Lord to cast His light upon their decisions.

May Jesus bless you and may the Virgin watch over you.

Cordially, Francis PP”.
