to the Apostolic Administration of Saint John Mary Vianney, in Campos, Brazil.
Bishop Fernando Rifan with Fr. Claudiomar Souza and some members of his flock in a recent pilgrimage to Aparecida, the National Shrine of Brazil, whose main cupolas are being restored in preparation to the CELAM 2007 Conference. All races, all ages, one Tradition, One Church. Animarum bonum suprema est lex ac finis Ecclesiae!
On January 18, 2002, the Decree "Animarum Bonum" of Erection of the Personal Apostolic Administration of Saint John Mary Vianney was signed by the appropriate authority, a few weeks after the autograph letter of Pope John Paul II recognizing full communion with Bishop Licinio Rangel and the Traditionalist priests linked to the heritage of Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer.
