Pope approves canonical coronation of Manila’s Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Pope Francis has approved the canonical coronation of the image of Our Lady of Mount Carmel enshrined in a minor basilica in Quezon City.

Although the Vatican approved the petition last May 13, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, it was only announced last week by the Diocese of Cubao.

A canonical coronation is a pious institutional act, wherein the pope, through a bull, designates a crown or stellar halo to be added to a Marian image under a specific devotional title in a particular area or diocese.

The crowning of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in the Minor Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel will be the third such coronation that will take place in the diocese.

The two other images that have received pontifical coronations are the Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary de Manila and the Our Lady of Lourdes, both enshrined in two national shrines.

The diocese said the coronation is the pope’s way to affirm the devotion of the faithful to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, whose feast will be celebrated on July 16.
