Cabrini Ministries Swaziland has been tremendously blessed this month, by having two canonical visits from Sr. Babara Staley, the General Superior for the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart and His Excellency +Rev Peter Wells.Such visitations are incumbent on the shepherd who would properly feed and guard his flock.
In her speech to the staff Sr. Barbara emphasized that ”we are not a faith based organisation but we are a faith organisation”. ”we are not in love but we are love” In addition to that she said: ”As Cabrinian we have been chosen by God to be here to show love to his people… and as a missionary community to show the love of Jesus by taking care of those suffering physically”.
” As humans we are called to know and love one another and thus express our humanity and that, sets us apart from animals”

The presence of the General superior in the mission was not just a historic event but her presence rejuvenated the Cabrinian Missionary zeal and and the genuine, selfless love for the people of God.
The canonical visits were culminated by visit of the Nuncio +Rev Peter Wells who blessed Cabrini Ministries by showing love and humility as he explored the work of Cabrini Ministries. His symbolic Gesture of sharing Rosaries with the Cabrini Management , shows his call to the staff to continue to pray as they do their daily work. Today in Cabrini we can stand and say “Emanuel Cabrini”
