Brother Junipero Serra Medal

1 Feb

 

Pope Francis Rosary at the Catholic Faith Store

In January 2015, Pope Francis announced that he would canonize Brother Junipero Serra, the Spanish priest who founded several missions in California.   The canonization will take place in September 2015 during the pope’s visit to the United States.  The pope has said that although he would like to visit California and canonize Brother Serra there, he will not have time during this first visit to the United States.  The pope only plans to visit Philadelphia, New York, and Washington.  He is going to say mass in Washington, D.C. at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and confer sainthood upon Brother Serra.  The pope feels that Washington, D.C. will be a fitting site because there is a statue of Brother Serra in the United States Capital.
