“My mobile phone rang and when I asked who it was, he responded, ’The Pope’,” Pereyra told an Argentinean television network. “I just froze.”
“The Pope listened to what I said with much attention,” she said. “He told me that I was not alone and that I must have faith in the justice system.”
The Pope “told me that he receives thousands of letters a day but that the one that I wrote had touched his heart,” Pereyra added.
She said she would “do everything possible” to travel to Rome to meet the Pope in person.
“He said he would receive me,” said Pereyra, who comes from Rio Segundo, located about 450 miles northwest of Buenos Aires.
