Apostolic Blessing

Dear Monsignor Procyk:

Pope John Paul II imparts the Apostolic Blessing on those who made possible the building of Cathedral Social Center as well as those attending the Blessing and Dedication of the newly constructed Center of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Pittsburgh on May 23, 1982.

I would like to share with you some considerations of Pope John Paul.

"My brothers and sisters, let the light of Christ's Gospel shine through your words and actions. Let your eyes be lifted up to Jesus, constantly drawing the attention of the world to Him. Be ever joyful in the confidence that Jesus is with His Church; that his prayer will be fulfilled; that He does make all things new. And thus with 'hearts throbbing and full' let us sing praise to the Father for the love He has bestowed on us in Christ Jesus his Son who gave himself as a ransom for all.'"

To the blessing of the Holy Father, I would like to join my congratulations and best wishes. May the Mother of God, Mary, ever bring you through the use of this blessed building, closer to her Son.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Apostolic Delegate
