Special English Language Edition of Il Volto Santo di Manoppello Now Available Online

After 110 years of publication the official organ of the Shrine of the Holy Face of Manoppello, Il Volto Santo di Manoppello, under the direction of Fr. Carmine Cucinelli, OFM, Cap., Rector of the Shrine, has produced a special edition in English during the Holy Year of Mercy entitled "The Holy Face, from Manoppello to the World".  This groundbreaking edition contains 30 articles written by Antonio Bini which have appeared in english translation on this blog over the past eight years.  The articles include many important reports on the shrine's recent activities regarding  the Holy Face in Italy, news on the Missions of the Holy Face to the Philippines, USA and Canada  as well as  historical essays on the image of the Holy Face, the Abruzzo pilgrimage tradition to Manoppello, and the cause for beatification of Fr. Domenico da Cese, the Capuchin friar known as the Apostle of the Holy Face.  It was Fr. Domenico who began to spread devotion to the precious Manoppello image of the Holy Face  beyond the confines of Abruzzo.  I am thrilled to be able to share this record of Antonio Bini's beautiful testimony to the Holy Face of Manoppello with you.  It is available by clicking on the link below
