Sister Raffaella Petrini, Secretary-General of the Governorate of Vatican City State, recalled during the ceremony that the Virgin of the Thirty-Three was proclaimed Patroness of Uruguay by John XXIII in 1962 at the request of the bishops and the government. Among others present at the ceremony were Cardinal Daniel Sturla, SDB, Archbishop of Montevideo, and Msgr. Enrico dal Covolo, SDB. The mosaic was donated by the Uruguayan Embassy to the Holy See.

(ANS - Vatican City) - Acknowledge and welcome one's own vulnerability in order to know how to bow to those of others. This is the message that Pope Francis left yesterday, May 5, to the Superiors General gathered in Rome for the XII Plenary Assembly of the UISG (International Union of Superiors General): a message he was not afraid to exemplify in the first person, arriving at the meeting in a wheelchair, due to persistent knee pain.

(ANS - Vatican City) - The Holy See Press Office announced today that the Holy Father Pope Francis has nominated Fr. Nirmol Vincent Gomes, SDB, as Bishop of the Diocese of Krishnagar, India, who is currently the Vicar of the Novitiate in Dhajea, Darjeeling, belonging to the Province of Calcutta - India (INC).

(ANS - Vatican City) - Just as after a fast one eats more to recover lost energy, so St. Peter's Square, after abstinence from crowded celebrations due to the pandemic, was filled yesterday, Easter Monday, April 18, 2022, with a flood of Italian teenagers - about 100,000, according to estimates - who came on pilgrimage to Rome from all the dioceses of the peninsula. It was Pope Francis himself, with the simple and engaging language he uses with teens, who used the metaphor of fasting at the opening of his friendly and fatherly address to the participants.

(ANS - Vatican) - On 9 April 2022, the Holy Father Francis received in audience His Eminence Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, Prefect of the Vatican Congregation for the Causes of Saints. During the Audience, the Supreme Pontiff authorized him to promulgate the Decree concerning:

- the miracle attributed to the intercession of Blessed Artemide Zatti, Professed Layman of the Salesian Society of St John Bosco; born on 12 October 1880 in Boretto (Italy) and died on 15 March 1951 in Viedma (Argentina).

This act of the Holy Father opens the way for the Canonization of Blessed Artemide Zatti. The date of the Canonization will be decided by the Supreme Pontiff during an ordinary Consistory.
