SPECIAL ENVOY FOR 475TH ANNIVERSARY OF FIRST DIOCESE IN SOUTH AMERICA

Vatican City, 18 October 2012 (VIS) - Made public today was a letter, written in Latin and dated 3 October, in which the Holy Father appoints Cardinal Raul Eduardo Vela Chiriboga, archbishop emeritus of Quito, Ecuador, as his special papal envoy to celebrations marking the 475th anniversary of the first diocese of South America, now the archdiocese of Cuzco, Peru, due to take place from 24 to 28 October.

In his letter the Pope recalls that the celebrations will coincide with the International Marian Eucharistic Congress and, quoting from Blessed John Paul II's Encyclical "Ecclesia de Eucharistia", he notes that "Mary can guide us towards this most holy Sacrament, because she herself has a profound relationship with it".
