President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner returned to BA City Cathedral for the Tedeum ceremony commemorating the May Revolution for the first time in eight years and  was visibly moved as she read the Peace prayer during the service.

"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, where there is hatred, let me sow love; when there is injury, pardon, where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope, where there is darkness, light, and where there is sadness, joy,” the President read.

Moved to tears, she continued reading St. Francis of Assisi’s prayer: “Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood, as to understand, to be loved as to love, for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life”.

The president’s return to the Tedeum highlights improved relations between the church and the government. Eight years ago ex President Néstor Kirchner decided to stop attending the traditional annual ceremony after former archibishop Jorge Bergoglio gave a harsh homily in 2006, criticising politicians.
