Lex Cordis Caritas - The law of the heart is Love

by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki
Among the millions of participants at the closing Mass for World Youth Day on Sunday, July 28, in Rio di Janiero, Brazil, will be 35 pilgrims from the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois from our parishes in Beardstown, Effingham and Marshall. Travelling with them are Fathers Chris Brey, David Hoefler, Brian Alford and me. The main celebrant for this Mass will be Pope Francis himself, returning to his native South America for his first World Youth Day.
