 Mexico City (Agenzia Fides) - The Presidency of the Latin American Episcopal Council (CELAM), together with the Bishops of Mexico, on Easter Sunday, April 12, will celebrate at 12 noon (Mexico time), the Act of consecration of Latin America and the Caribbean to Our Lady of Guadalupe, "to invoke the end of the pandemic". As the President of CELAM, Archbishop Miguel Cabrejos Vidarte, Archbishop of Trujillo, writes, "the present moment requires us, as Pastors, to see and listen to the afflictions of our peoples, to instill hope by looking at our Mother of Heaven". He therefore invites all the countries of the continent to join, through the media, the celebration to be held in the Mexican National Basilica. At noon on April 12, the bells of all the churches of Latin America and the Caribbean will ring, which will mark the beginning of the prayer of the missionary Rosary, offered for the health of the people of the five continents, followed by the resurrection Easter Mass which will conclude with the act of consecration to Our Lady of Guadalupe.
