Guayaquil, Ecuador, Feb 15, 2022 / 14:00 pm
A bell forged in Poland and blessed by Pope Francis has arrived in Ecuador, where it will ring out in honor of unborn children.
The bell, known as the “Voice of the Unborn,” was welcomed into the Cathedral of St. Peter the Apostle in Guayaquil, Ecuador’s chief port city, during a Mass on Feb. 12.
The pope blessed the bell, one of three created at the behest of Poland’s Yes to Life foundation, at the Vatican on Oct. 27, 2021.
The first bell was produced in 2020 after Bogdan Romaniuk, the foundation’s vice-president, read that more than 42 million children are killed annually worldwide as a result of abortion.
