Today is a big day. For a start, it is the feast of the Immaculate Conception, our patronal feastday.
Happy feastday to all Missionaries of Africa and Missionary Sisters of our Lady of Africa.
But it is also the day of the beatification of our 4 confreres Missionaries of Africa who died in Algeria because of their unconditional dedication to their Mission.
Here is the video of the Mass of Beatification in Oran on this Saturday, feast of the Immaculate Conception, in Oran (Algeria). Enjoy it.
Here in Rome, we celebrated the event together with the White Sisters (MSOLA). Father Guy Theunis, superior of the community of the Generalate, gave us an excellent homily, showing us how Mary and Jesus were very much alike at least following five traits of their personalities. You will find the text of this homily on the following post.
