NOTE

Vatican City, 1 April 2014 (VIS) - We advise our readers that the article "Preparing for the Canonisation of John XXIII and John Paul II", published in the VIS bulletin yesterday, 31 March, contained an invalid link to the official page for the postulation of the cause of Blessed John Paul II with content in five languages.

The official link is: https://www.facebook.com/PapaGiovanniPaoloIIpaginaufficiale

We also wish to inform our readers that in yesterday's "Other Pontifical Acts" we erroneously reported that Rev. Nicholas Gilbert Hudson had been appointed to the pastoral care of Southwark. Bishop-elect Hudson has in fact been appointed as auxiliary of the archdiocese of Westminster, England. We apologise for the error.
