A Special Feast of the Holy Family for Spain

On 1100 on 30 December, thousands, millions, of Spaniards will gather in the Plaza de Colón in Madrid to celebrate the feast of the Holy Family. The Holy Father will speak to them live from Rome.

Please pray for the Church in Spain at this time, and encourage anybody you know who might be in Madrid that Sunday to take part. The Spanish Government needs to understand that the Church is strong and united.

Natch, always been them around as wanted and supported all this, thing is a majority of voters now vote for it all& see no wrong, problem is society not govt although govt undoubtedly makes it worse.
Bishops finally moving in unison, pulling all stops to encourage this madrid gathering including giving space to what many bishops positively disencourage. A large number on but the one moment openly in madrid is not to save souls of itself, but it's a necessary move at this juncture.
Please include this in yr prayers for the chuch and the world.
