During the program, His Holiness described Father Hanna as a true shepherd of those entrusted to his care by the Holy Church. He served them unconditionally even when he was down with cancer. Fr. Hanna is the best example of what Jesus Christ described as a servant leader. Even when he was suffering from chronic pain from cancer, Fr. Hanna went to hospital, not for his own treatment, but to see, comfort, and pray for others who are being cared for at the hospital. It was difficult to miss the affection and love of our Holy Father to Fr. Hanna. A sold out crowd at the banquet hall attended by people from all over the United States and beyond provided further proof that Fr. Hanna's popularity was not confined to national boundaries.
