Relics of Saint Faustina Placed in Church of Ruzsa

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.08.20.

Relics of Saint Faustina were placed in the Catholic church of Ruzsa, in southeastern Hungary, during a Polish-Hungarian mass on Saturday.

The mass was led by Archbishop of Krakow Marek Jedraszewski, who was joined by Bishop Emeritus of Szeged-Csanád Endre Gyulay and Bishop Emeritus of Győr Lajos Pápai.

In remarks before the mass, Miklós Soltész, state secretary for religious and ethnic relations, stressed the importance of defending Christian values.

“These values have come under attack recently. There are those who want to push these values, which are in the hearts of everyone, into the background,” he said.

“We will not allow an aggressive minority to impose ideologies that subvert the laws of nature on the majority…nor will we accept efforts by the far left to attack and undermine the Judeo-Christian roots of churches and believers,” he added.

Sister Faustina, a Polish nun, was canonised by Pope John Paul II in 2000.
