For many of the 26 people who joined Bishop Mitchell T. Rozanski on a recent pilgrimage to the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, the spiritual highlight was praying in the presence of the famous icon known as Our Lady of Czechtochowa. The pilgrims had the honor of sitting only a few feet away from the “Black Madonna” as Bishop Rozanski led them in Marian prayers. Moved by the experience, several participants wiped away tears of joy. Check out this video report:

PRAGUE – Bishop Mitchell T. Rozanski’s pilgrimage to Europe has landed in Prague. I haven’t had a free moment to post, but stay tuned for a video report on the Infant of Prague, located at the Church of Our Lady Victorious. Should be up later today. (The pilgrimage group has been going strong for two days straight without any sleep!)
In the meantime, enjoy a few photos from the church posted below. Prague definitely lives up to its billing as one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
Last week, I covered a town meeting in Cumberland regarding the future of parishes in the area. A proposal will be presented to Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien that would unite the parishes into a new faith community with a new name and a single pastoral staff. Cumberland’s St. Mary, St. Patrick and Ss. Peter and Paul and Cresaptown’s St. Ambrose would continue offering weekend Masses under the plan, while St. Patrick in Mount Savage would become a “station” for funerals, weddings and special liturgies – but no regular Masses.
Much more will be coming in a story in The Catholic Review. In the meantime, check out this video I put together on the meeting.
