Grand Master expresses his gratitude
Rome, 17 December 2019
Archbishop Angelo Acerbi, beloved Prelate Emeritus of the Order, has today celebrated Mass in the baroque Santissima Trinita’ dei Spagnoli church, an annual event for the Order’s staff in Rome. In wishing the congregation all Christmas blessings, he also thanked them for their commitment to the splendid work of the Order. Grand Master Fra’Giacomo Dalla Torre, just returned from his State Visit to Bulgaria, echoed these sentiments during the reception which followed, expressing his appreciation to all present. “None of our achievements are possible without your constant help, support and hard work. Your work is vital,” he said.
The church and its adjoining convent were built by the Spanish Trinitarians between 1741 and 1746 under Pope Benedict XIV and designed by the Portuguese architect Emanuele Rodriguez dos Santos.
