Greek Rite Catholics...from Romania!
The Church lives! Does everyone know that the persecuted Catholic Faith in Romania lives?! Thanks in large part to the old Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Western Romania of today has many faithful Catholics and they are not to be forgotten. They are proud Catholics and even have their own parish in Rome near to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. Pope John Paul II, of blessed memory, made an apostolic voyage to Romania in a.D. 1999, in preparation for the Holy Year.
