Paul Badde gave an explanation of the Holy Face with details about the life of the Servant of God Domenico da Cese, Apostle of the Holy Face. Fr. Johri expressed his thanks to all those, far and near, who collaborate with the Capuchins of the shrine in spreading devotion to the Holy Face around the world, and also expressed his conviction that the shrine would be one of the principal destinations for the upcoming Holy Year of Mercy.
