Variety #76 – Burundian Drummers ( 03min) >>> Play
Brought to you by the Foundation of Our Lady of All Nations.
We may look back on a very successful day of prayer in honor of the Lady of All Nations, which during the day 1300 people participated.
On this bright sunny day of Pentecost the prayer day began at 1 p.m. at the Beurs van Berlage and opened with the Rosary. The program consisted of several lectures, including Father John (CSJ), who spoke on Mary as Coredemptrix.
The Burundian choir was performed with great enthusiasm by dancing and loud drumming. This created a unique and special atmosphere. Burundian Bishop, Bishop Joseph Nduhirubusa spoke passionately about the love and devotion to Mary, the Lady of All Nations in his diocese (consisting of 500,000 believers) and beyond.
Prof. Dr. M. Miravalle spoke about fifth Marian dogma as Mary Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.
One of the highlights of the day was the forum, in which Mgr. JM Punt (Bishop of Haarlem-Amsterdam), Mgr. Dr. JWM Hendriks (Canon law professor and Mario Logie) and Mr. R. Soffner (Coordinator of the supervisory Lady of All Nations) participated and gave answers to the most current questions surrounding the Lady of All Nations.
This beautiful and successful prayer day ended with a Pontifical Mass with the main celebrant Bishop Punt, Mgr. Punt and Bishop Joseph Nduhirubusa.
