In my two and a half years study at Waseda University, the Franciscan Chapel Center in Roppongi Hills had been an important part of my life in Tokyo. I am very grateful to the Friars and the entire community of the Fanciscan Chapel Center for their warm welcome and for their love and support during my stay in Japan. You will always be in my heart.
As a send-off (sayonara) gift, the FCC community gave me these beautiful picture of Japanese Madonna and Child along with this ancient prayer to the Virgin Mary.
We turn to you for protection, Holy Mother of God. Listen to our prayers and help us in our needs. Save us from every danger, glorious and blessed Virgin
