Cardinal’s visit cheers Haitian faithful in Boston — The Boston Globe


LangloisIMG_0897Langlois visited Boston Sunday to celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the patroness of Haiti. More than a thousand members of Boston’s large Haitian community filled the Basilica and Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, also called the Mission Church, beyond capacity, praying, singing, and dancing their way through a colorful and spirited Mass conducted in French and Haitian Creole.

“I knew him when he was a priest in Jacmel, and now he’s a cardinal,” said a tearful Faveus, who shared a warm embrace with Langlois as he proceeded down the aisle of the cathedral. “The minute he saw me, he remembered me. I was so, so happy, so, so excited. . . . It was like I was in heaven.” via – The Boston Globe
