Pope Francis blesses altar for South Korean sanctuary
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Wednesday blessed an altar destined for a Marian sanctuary in South Korea during his General Audience.
The “Adoratio Domini in unitate et pace” will be placed in the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rosary in Namyang, South Korea.
Pope Francis mentioned the altar in his greetings to Polish pilgrims.
He said the request for his blessing of the altar was made by the Queen of Peace Community Association in Radom, Poland.
The association is setting up 12 centers for Eucharistic Adoration and perpetual prayer for peace in “hotspots” around the world.
The Pope said the group drew its inspiration for the Adoration centers from the “12 stars in the crown of Mary, Queen of Peace”.
