Sister Marilu Covani, S.P., has recently found herself humming the national anthem of Argentina, “Himno Nacional Argentino,” for the first time in decades.
On the day that her fellow countryman, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, was elected the 266th Pope, Sr. Covani, who directs the diocesan Office of Worship, wore an endless smile – and her pin with the Argentine flag.
“I have a new joy,” she says. “I am full of hope for the whole world and for Latin America. My prayers are going to be with him all along.”
