Spanish bishops plan pilgrimage

~from CWN

Spanish bishops are planning a national pilgrimage this autumn, to coincide with the beatification of 498 martyrs of the Spanish civil war, the Fides news service reports.

You are the Light of the World," is the title of a statement issued by the Spanish bishops at the end of a recent plenary assembly. The bishops say this beatification will be "an occasion of grace for the Church and society in Spain," profoundly necessary in the country where there is a "spreading secular mentality and national harmony seems threatened."
