Headline: EUROPE/ITALY – With two new priests, the Burmese community in Italy remembers “the suffering homeland” and prays for Aung San Suu Kyi
Monza – “We remember Aung San Suu Kyi in our prayers so that with the blessing of God she will have good health and the wishes of her heart come true”, says Sister Beatrice, a Burmese nun living in Italy, originally from Myitkyina, capital of the State of Kachin. If there was still any doubt as to how the Burmese religious community in Italy is experiencing what is happening in Myanmar since the coup of 1 February 1, on Saturday, June 19, which corresponds to Aung San Suu Kyi’s birthday, completely dispelled it. The site is the International Theological Seminary of the Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions of Monza, an ancient structure wedged in the largest enclosed park in Europe and run by Fr. Gianni Criveller.
