Pilgrimage Shows Conflict Overcome
Italians, Slovenians, and Austrians Meet at Shrine
Source: Zenit (Udine, Italy), August 31, 2009
Our Lady of Graces in Udine has brought three peoples together, characterized by common historical roots and bitter conflict.
On Aug. 29, pilgrims from the Dioceses of Gorizia and Udine, Italy; Lubiana, Maribor and Koper, Slovenia, and
Klagenfurt and Graz, Austria, went on pilgrimage together to Udine's shrine of the Virgin of Graces.
Bishops Alois Schwartz of Gurk-Klagenfurt, Alojzij Uran of Lubliana, and Metod Pirih of Koper were among the pilgrims.
This is the twenty-seventh year for the annual pilgrimage, which was begun by then Bishop Alfredo Battisti of Udine, as a
sign of reconciliation between three peoples with common historical roots, who suffered bitter conflict during the last century. ...

the University of Dayton. Our
gracious host was the Rev. Johann Roten, S.M., director of the center. It
was an extraordinary event in the history of COROS ...
Special mention should be made of Brother Raymond Boutin, the Canadian Marianist
who planned The Marian Library's philatelic exhibit, also working periodically
in Dayton, and Michael Duricy, who manages The Mary Page website that now has

The ATA National Topical Stamp Show was held at the Dayton Convention Center,
and was an excellent venue for COROSians to meet for a tour, meeting, seminars,
and an evening dinner ... The COROS Day started out with a 10:30 am tour of The
Marian Library located in Roesch Library of the University of Dayton campus.
Ten COROSians viewed the Madonna statues and the Marian Philatelic display.
Part of the tour included one of the art museums focusing on the display of
Nativity scenes from the Crèche Collection of
The Marian Library. Father Johann Roten led our tour and later came to our
meeting and joined our COROS society. ...
