Getafe, Spain, Apr 12, 2022 / 14:10 pm
The Diocese of Getafe, in collaboration with the Shrine of the Great Promise in Valladolid, has made 10,000 Sacred Heart of Jesus badges that were sent to Ukraine in early April. There they will be picked by Franciscan friars to distribute to Ukrainian soldiers.
Members of the Apostles of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and more than 50 volunteers made the badges by cutting them from cloth, covering them with clear plastic, and packaging them together with a prayer to the Virgin in Ukrainian, while other volunteers prayed the rosary.
They intend to send a total of 100,000 badges in various shipments of humanitarian aid from the diocese.
The badges were donated by the Castilla Textil company and the explanatory text that accompanies them was donated by the ID Comunidad Gráfica de Boadilla del Monte. The remainder of the badges are being financed with private donations.
