Mother of the Holy Face, Mediatrix of All Graces, Bless the Pilgrim for Peace Pope Benedict XVI
Pope Benedict XVI begins his historic visit to the people and places of the Holy Land to promote peace and unity among all peoples. This day in a number of dioceses around the world the feast of Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces, is celebrated. May this special visit help Mary to watch over all humanity and cause the image and likeness of her Son's face to shine ever brighter in each one of us and especially in those places of sin, darkness, and violence.
