Papal envoy serves mass in honour of St Agnes of Bohemia

The Pope’s special envoy Cardinal Joachim Meisner, archbishop of Cologne, served a special mass in St Vitus’ Cathedral on Saturday in honour of St. Agnes of Bohemia on the 22nd anniversary of her canonization by the Roman Catholic Church in 1989. The mass is part of a series of events this year marking the eighth centenary of the birth of St. Agnes of Bohemia, one of the country’s most revered saints. In a letter to Czech believers, written in Latin, the Pope speaks of the outstanding character of St. Agnes and the strength of her legacy.
