Highway in Argentina to be named after soon-to-be blessed

.- A lawmaker in the Argentinean congress has proposed renaming the country’s Route 22 in honor of Cerefino Namuncura, a native Argentinean who will soon be beatified.

Representative Claudio Lueiro proposed renaming the highway which passes through Namuncura’s home town of Chimpay.  He said many people travel the highway to visit the places associated with her life and that therefore the route has become “a true road of faith and a way of the Cross.” 

A similar proposal was made in 1998 by the pastor of the Shrine of St. Cajetan in San Carlos de Bariloche, Father Ricardo Noceti, together with local lawmakers, who said the proposal represented “the most esteemed sentiments of the men and women of my province” and that “many faithful travel this route as a true via crucis” out of devotion to “Cerefino.”

Route 22 runs from Buenos Aires through the cities of Pampa and Rio Negro to Neuquen.
