            During the celebration
of the Eucharist on Sunday, 20 October, 2013, the feast of St. Paul of the
Cross, the monastery Church of Jesus Crucified, in the Diocese of Jequié Bahia,
Brazil, was elevated to the category of “Shrine” with the title of “The Shrine
of Jesus Crucified”.  The diocesan bishop,
José Rui, OFM, was the principal concelebrant of the Eucharist, which was concelebrated
by the Regional Superior, Fr. Peter Bacchiocchi (PRAES) and other Passionist
religious.

            This year this monastery is also
celebrating the 60th anniversary of its foundation — sixty years of
Passionist presence in the city of Jequié-Ba, evangelizing and animating the
faith of the people who love the charism of the Passion of Jesus Crucified,
becoming disciples of Christ.

            We thank God for the work done here by many missionaries that ministered and left their Passionist spiritual
imprint.  To them we wish to express our
appreciation in the mission carried out for the Kingdom of God.  We are also grateful to the local Bishop of Jequié
who has acknowledged the spiritual fruits of the strong Passionist presence in
this Shrine and to all who come to this Shrine so that they can experience strength in
their life of faith.
