MANILA, Philippines—Pope Francis granted the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Loreto in Manila a canonical coronation.

In the English translation of the letter read on Sunday by Fr. Enrico Adoviso, the parish priest and rector of the Archdiocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Loreto, the image of the Virgin Mary will be “crowned with a precious diadem.”
