The 2014 General Assembly of the Emperor Karl League was held on the 18th October in Heilegenkreuz Abbey in Vienna, Austria. The President, the Executive President, the Committee and many Delegates attended. Many important issues were discussed such as the Official website of the League and the reported "Miracle" through Emperor Karl`s intercession in the U.S.A. along with other plans for the future.
This year`s Annual Pilgrimage was held in Sopron, Hungary. It was precisely in this city that in 1895, Mother Vincentia Fauland prophesied that the young Archduke Karl would one day become Emperor of Austria, suffer a lot and be a target of hell! She asked for a prayer group to be formed in order for its members to sustain Karl with their prayers and sacrifices. This group later came to be known as the Emperor Karl League of Prayers for Peace among Nations. The Holy Mass was celebrated by H.G. Mgr. Dr. Fernand Franck - Archbishop Emeritus of Luxembourg and President of the League. The Executive President was also present along with the General Assembly and many Delegates.
A relic of Blessed Emperor Karl I of Austria was enshrined in the Church of Santa Maria dell`Anima in Rome. Mgr. Arnaldo Morandi - Delegate of the Emperor Karl League of Prayers for Italy was present along with Mgr. Dr. Franz Xaver Brandmayr - Rector of the Papal College and Spiritual Assistant of the League. We do hope that pilgrims visiting this Roman Church will have the occasion to pray to Blessed Karl I and ask for his canonization!
The liturgical feast of Blessed Emperor Karl was celebrated in the Nossa Senhora do Monte Parish Church in Funchal, Madeira. It is precisely in this church that the mortal remains of Emperor Karl are preserved. The Mass was celebrated by the Rev. Fr. Giselo Andrade - Parish Priest of Monte. After the Mass, the congregation prayed for the Canonization of Karl in front of his tomb.
The Liturgical Feast of Blessed Karl I was celebrated on the 21st October in the Saint Gottardo Church in Brescia. The Mass was presided by H.G. Mgr. Vigilio Mario Olmi - Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Brescia.
The Liturgical Feast of Blessed Karl I was celebrated on the 21st October in the Collegiate Basilica of the Visitation in Gharb - Gozo. The Mass was celebrated by the Rev. Dr. Joseph Sultana - Archpriest of Gharb. Many Maltese members of the Emperor Karl League of Prayers were present along with many parishioners who accepted our invitation! We were also privileged to have the Knights and Dames of the Order of Malta for the celebration. After the Mass, Dennis Mifsud - Delegate of the League for Malta, made a speech in which he talked about the history of the League and the Canonization Cause of Blessed Karl I of Austria. Many parishioners asked for admission in the League. In fact, the League is growing rapidly in this beautiful island!
