Bratislava gets Brazilian sculpture

THE PETRŽALKA Catholic Church of Our Lady of Sorrows (the patron saint of Slovakia) was due to receive a special arrival from Brazil on January 20, just after this issue of The Slovak Spectator went to print. At a special mass held in this modern church a sculpture of Our Lady of Aparecida, the patron saint of Brazil, is being enthroned after having travelled all the way from Brazil. The ceremony will be overseen by the archbishop of Bratislava, Stanislav Zvolenský, and by the cardinal archbishop of Aparecida and president of the National Conference of Bishops of Brazil, Raymundo Damasceno Assis. Monsignor Mario Giordana, the apostolic nuncio to Bratislava, also planned to participate. The image is being brought to the church at the initiative of Brazilian Ambassador to Slovakia, Marilia Sardenberg Zelner Gonçalves.
