Vatican City, 15 April 2014 – The Office of Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff under Pope Francis today announced that on Thursday, 24 April, at 6.00 a.m., Cardinal Orlando B. Quevedo, O.M.I., archbishop of Cotabato, Philippines, will take possession of the title of St. Mary “Regina Mundi” in Torre Spaccata (Via Alessandro Barbosi, 6), the Vatican’s VIS news agency reported.
It is located in Torre Spaccata suburb (south-east of Rome) whose name is taken from the ruined tower on the east border of the area.
It’s website says St. Mary (Queen of the World) parish in the Diocese of Rome has been entrusted to a Carmelite Friars community of the Italian Province since 1961.
Today, the cardinal priests have a loose patronal relationship with their titular churches. Their names and coats of arms are inscribed on plaques in the churches, and many raise funds for their church’s maintenance and restoration, but they no longer participate in the actual management of the churches.
