leave a comment »

It hasn’t been widely reported, but an important beatification took place in Nazareth yesterday.

Maria Alfonsina Danil Ghattas (1843-1927), co-founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Most Holy Rosary in Jerusalem, was beatified in the Church of the Annunciation. The Catholic News Service has an excellent report.
