here and this was the first parish in the US.
Edward B. Scharfenberger recently had a Visitation with the Missionary
Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Albany, New York.
When he became Albany’s Bishop, he wrote, “When Pope Francis
called me to be Bishop of the Diocese of Albany, the one thing I feared
was that I would have to spend my days sitting behind a desk and
wouldn’t have the opportunity to do what I love most: to be a pastor, to
be with my people.”
Well, he wasn’t sitting at his desk when he had a happy visit
with the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Immaculate
Conception, the Queen of his diocese. Please see the photo below. Bishop
Ed also wrote her a love letter that you may read below.
The Missionary Image has traveled on Visitations for the last 25
years to bring conversions and a Culture of Life and Civilization of
Love, for which St. John Paul II prayed. Learn how to host a Visitation here.
