Sr. Santiago Ordoñez

Dear brothers,

On World Duchenne Awareness Day I join you in your actions to search for and develop more and better care and treatments that enable a better quality of life for people affected with this disease. I send my blessing. I pray for all of you, and please, I ask you to pray for me. May God bless you and the Holy Virgin take care of you.


Pope Francis
