Pope Francis on Sunday sent a new letter to priests worldwide offering encouragement in light of the global sex abuse scandal that has shaken the Roman Catholic Church.
The 150-year-old heart of a French priest is on a U.S. tour — a Roman Catholic relic with New York City as its latest stop.
A relic of St. John Vianney toured the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Feb. 20-26.
The incorrupt heart of St. John Vianney, the patron saint of parish priests, “reminds us God uses instruments to be ministers of his grace and mercy,” said Archbishop Christophe Pierre, apostolic nuncio to the United States.
The Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus announced Tuesday that the fraternal organization will sponsor a U.S. tour of the heart of St. John Vianney, in the wake of the Archbishop Theodore McCarrick scandal.
