ARCHBISHOP BUTI TLHAGALE DECLARES THE MARIAN SHRINE THE MONUMENT OF MERCY

During the beautiful and colorful ceremony closing the Jubilee of Mercy in the Archdiocese on 19 Nov 2016 at the Cathedral of Christ the King, the Archbishop in responding to the request of Pope Francis declared the Marian Shrine as a lasting memorial or monument of mercy. Here is the text of declaration:

Archbishop Buti Tlhagale

‘How  beautiful  it would be  to have as a  reminder/a memorial … in  every Diocese during this Year of  Mercy, an  institutional  expression  of Mercy  e.g. a  Hospital…   It would  be very good  for each  Diocese  to consider:   What can  we leave as a living memory,  as  a work of  living mercy,  as a  wound of the living Jesus  Christ for this  Year of Mercy?  Let us reflect on this  and speak to our  Bishops  about  it.’  Words of the Holy Father, Pope Francis,  at the Prayer Vigil on the occasion  of the Jubilee of Divine Mercy, on  Saturday  2  April  2016.
