“Red eyes”, Sonia Côté was still in the grip of emotion after meeting Pope Francis in private as part of his appointments behind closed doors which take place at the Archbishopric of Quebec.

Accompanied by her parents, Ms. Côté obtained this privilege after a request on behalf of her organization, Loge m’entraide de Chicoutimi, which has already received financial assistance from the Pope. His parents, who are celebrating 65 years of marriage, were blessed by the Holy Father.

"I'm still full of emotion, it's an incredible, unforgettable moment," said the lady. “What is exceptional is that we asked for a private meeting and he accepted it on behalf of low-income tenants in Saguenay. It’s quite an honor, we are not in the upper echelons of society”.

During the morning, several people, including religious, entered and left the Archdiocese. A few residential school survivors were also seen entering the building.
