Cuban bishop pledges to spread devotion to the Holy Grail of Valencia

.- Bishop Emilio Aranguren of Holguin, was given the medal of the Fraternity of the Holy Grail of the Last Supper in Valencia last week, and he pledged to spread devotion to the relic throughout Cuba.

According to the AVAN news agency, the conferring of the insignia took place on October 5th after a Eucharist celebrated by Bishop Aranguren at the chapel of the Holy Grail at the Cathedral of Valencia.  During the Mass, he emphasized the close relationship that exists “between the Diocese of Valencia and the Church in Cuba,” as “for fifteen years various priests from Valencia have worked as missionaries in the Cuban dioceses of Holguin and Santa Clara.”

Moreover, he said, several Cuban priests and seminarians have been receiving their priestly formation in Valencia “for several years.”  “My visit to Valencia is, therefore, an expression of thanks to the Diocese of Valencia,” he added.

Ignacio Carrau, president of the fraternity, conferred the medal on Bishop Aranguren “in recognition of his apostolic labors in Cuba,” and he also gave him several books about the Holy Grail, who said he would distribute them at his parishes in order to spread devotion to the relic.
The Cathedral of Valencia holds what many believe to be the actual chalice used by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper.
