2016-01-14 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Thursday met with a delegation from Rome’s Colegio Sacerdotal Argentino, which forms priests for Argentina.

“It was a meeting of a shepherd with his flock,” said Father Ángel Hernández, the rector of the College.

In an interview with Vatican Radio’s Spanish service, Father Hernández said the Holy Father told them when they returned to Argentina, they should take care of their prayer life, and preach the Word of God in the place they have been sent.

The rector also said Pope Francis told him there are “many saints in the Church,” and “there are many saints in the Roman Curia.”
