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.

Part 4: New Insights on the Gospels: Launching at the Vatican

On November 28, the first two volumes of the work of the Founder and Superior General of the Association of Pontifical Right Heralds of the Gospel, Msgr. João Scognamiglio Clá DiasNew Insights on the Gospels, published in four languages by the Libreria Editrice Vaticana, were presented in the Vatican.
The solemn event was held in the St. Pius X Auditorium, on the Via della Conciliazione, in a warm and cordial atmosphere, which on several occasions led the speakers to abandon their prepared texts, to speak ex abundantia cordis. This was the same locale where the third volume of the Pope’s work on Jesus of Nazareth, entitled The Infancy Narratives, was presented the previous week.
Three cardinals, five archbishops and bishops, and the ambassadors to the Holy See from Paraguay, El Salvador and Slovenia participated in the session. Especially noteworthy among the cardinals was Cardinal Franc Rodé, CM, Prefect Emeritus of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, and Archbishop Emeritus of Ljubljana (Slovenia), who wrote a preface for the work and who was a speaker at the launching. The ceremony was also graced with the presence of Cardinal Salvatore de Giorgi, Archbishop Emeritus of Palermo, and Cardinal Santos Abril y Castelló, Archpriest of the Basilica of St. Mary Major, as well as Archbishop Jean-Louis Bruguès, OP, Archivist and Librarian of the Holy Roman Church; Bishop Juan Ignacio Arrieta, Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts; Archbishop François Robert Bacqué, Apostolic Nuncio Emeritus to Netherlands; Most Rev. José Daniel Falla, Auxiliary Bishop of Bogotá and Secretary of the Colombian Bishops’ Conference, and Most Rev. Giovanni D’Ercole, Auxiliary Bishop of Aquila.
Divided into seven volumes, the work covers the Sunday Gospels for the entire Liturgical Year, with insights that are new, and at the same time consonant with the most renowned commentators of Sacred Scripture. On this occasion, volumes V and VI were presented, covering Year C, the current year of the Liturgical Calendar. A total of 40 thousand copies of each volume, in four languages, were printed in this edition.

Each volume may be purchased for £20.00. They can be ordered by writing to:
