Totus Tuus - To Jesus through Mary.

To impel the beauty of the new evangelization – this is the charism of the Heralds of the Gospel; Its founder, Monsignor João Dias explains."The Heralds of the Gospel is a private association of faithful with a very special charism based essentially on three points: the Eucharist, Mary and the Pope."

The Heralds of the Gospel are an International Association of the Faithful of Pontifical Right, the first to be established by the Holy See in the third millennium, during a ceremony which occurred during the feast of the Chair of St. Peter (February 22) in 2001.

The Heralds of the Gospel strive to be instruments of holiness in the Church by encouraging close unity between faith and life, and working to evangelize particularly through art and culture. Their apostolate, which differs depending upon the environments in which they work, gives pride of place to parish animation, evangelizing families, providing catechetical and cultural formation to young people, and disseminating religious Iiterature.

Welcoming St Terese in Portsmouth

Some Heralds of the Gospel, including five Companions, were present at St John’s Cathedral, Portsmouth, to welcome the Relics of St Thérèse at the beginning of a month long tour of the country.
They participated in the morning’s Opening Liturgy which involved children and representatives of all the Catholic schools of the Diocese. In the afternoon, Bishop Crispian Hollis celebrated Mass - with Anointing of the Sick. Later there was the opportunity for all present to venerate the Relics.
The relics will travel round the country starting in Portsmouth and finishing four weeks later in London. They will visit 28 venues, including Catholic cathedrals, churches and Carmelite convents.
