Antonio Bini writes from the Shrine of the Holy Face
In the mountains of Abruzzo the snow has returned especially on the Maiella. The Shrine of the Holy Face was without electricity for three days. On Sunday morning (March 8) the power returned and road conditions improved. The snow has not stopped the pilgrims, who arrived at the shrine on numerous buses, as can be seen from the accompanying photo.
Many people participated in the Way of the Cross which was led in the early afternoon by the Polish nuns of the Holy Blood.
