MANILA, Aug. 31, 2015 – Bishop Guillermo Afable launched on Aug. 22, the 64th Patronal Fiesta of Mary Mediatrix of All Grace Cathedral in Digos City, the revival of the Movement for a dogmatic definition of the Blessed Virgin’s universal mediation of grace, on behalf of the Bishop Convenors of the movement.
During the event, which also fell on the Feast of the Queenship of Mary, Afable requested all Filipino clergy, religious, and the laity to support the movement convened by Ricardo Cardinal Vidal, Jaro Archbishop Angel Lagdameo, Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma, Batanes Bishop Prelate Camilo Gregorio, Cotabato Auxiliary Bishop Jose Colin Bagaforo, and Cebu Auxiliary Bishop-Emeritus Antonio Ranola, and help spread it throughout the world.
According to the prelate, the faithful need to establish the “sensus fidelium” of the matter so that the Holy Father could consider raising the said Catholic doctrine to the level of dogma.
The movement has two main goals, namely, the spread of the Crusade of Prayer and Consecration, and to solicit the support of bishops worldwide to sign the petition for the dogmatic definition of the Mediatrix.
Interested parties may reach the Movement through +639077583541; email@example.com; or Facebook account of the Movement for a dogmatic definition of Mary’s universal mediation of Grace. (CBCP News)
