CIOCI LOUISE AND ARCHBISHOP MICHAEL BANACH

By

February 2013 Father Banach was named the titular Archbishop of Memfi in Egypt.  This April he was named apostolic nuncio to Papua New Guinea.  This appointment was made by Pope Francis.  A nuncio is an ecclesiastical diplomatic title that is the equivalent to that of an ambassador.  The nuncio acts as the liaison between the Vatican and the country to which he has been assigned.

Today there was a Mass of Thanksgiving at Our Lady of Czestochowa (St. Marys) Church in Worcester, Mass. for Archbishop Banach.  There were three Archbishops, 2 Bishops, dozens of priests, deacons, nuns and hundreds of lay people in attendance.  The Roman Catholic Church knows how to do pomp and ceremony.  It was a beautiful mass.  It was a mixture of Polish and English.  His homily was interesting, arousing and motivating.  The Polish song about Madonna brought tears to Cioci Louise's eyes.  It was a very emotional mass for her.  She has been to Poland eight times to visit relatives.  She met a priest who she went to Poland with on two occasions.  He asked when she was going again.  She is 96 and has trouble walking.  She told him she wouldn't be going again.   My wife's family and Archbishop Banach family have been friends for 60 years.  I have never met him before but I have met his uncles, aunts, cousins, etc.

Archbishop Banach has a very bright future in the Catholic Church.  I wonder if he will be the first American Pope?

It could be a number of years before we have another Pope. Pope Francis is a Jesuit who are known as God's Marines

I was so surprised that he was named the Pope because he is a Jesuit.  There relationship with Rome has been a rocky one Doug.

She is a treasure Lisa.  She lives alone, takes no meds and is sharp as a tack.

Conrad, my great aunt lived alone until she was 98 and then still lived to over 100. She looks wonderful and I hope she has continued good health!
