DAY 16 Tues Jan 19 afternoon: Appointment with Congregation for Evangelization of the Peoples

ABOVE:  Here we are in the Chapel at the Congregation for the Evangelization of the Peoples.

The image above the altar is of the three magi who came to Jesus in Bethlehem.  This gospel account is of particular relevance for the Congregation whose aim is to support the mission of the Church to the entire world.  The three magi are the first pagans to encounter Jesus Christ.

ABOVE:  A habit of St. Terese of Lisieux, patroness of missionaries.

FURTHER:  Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman was Ordained a Priest of the Catholic Church in this chapel.

Please pray for all the missionaries and missions of the Church!
