1979: POPE JOHN PAUL II VISITS THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Pope John Paul II made his first pastoral visit to Dominican Republic on 25 January 1979 when he was greeted by President Antonio Guzman Fernandez and by over one million people. In his Homily the Holy Father told the multitude that attended the Eucharistic Celebration in Santo Domingo: “This Dominican land was once the first to receive, and then to give impetus to a grand enterprise of evangelization which deserves great admiration and gratitude. From the end of the fifteenth century, this beloved nation opens us to the faith of Jesus Christ; to this it has remained faithful up to the present.”

1979: PAPA GIOVANNI PAOLO II VISITA LA REPUBBLICA DOMENICANA
Il 25 Gennaio 1979, Papa Giovanni Paolo II fece la sua prima visita pastorale alla Repubblica Domenicana dove fu festeggiato da oltre un milione di isolani e dal presidente Antonio Guzman Fernandez. Nella sua omelia il Santo Padre si rivolse alla moltitudine accorsa alla Piazza dell’Indipendenza a Santo Domingo, dove si svolgeva la Celebrazione Eucaristica, con queste parole: “Questa terra Domenicana fu la prima a ricevere e poi a dare impeto alla grande impresa di evangelizzazione che merita una grande ammirazione e gratitudine. Sin dalla fine del Quattrocento, questa amata nazione ha aperto le braccia alla fede di Gesu’ Cristo, e a questa e’ rimasta fedele fino a tuttora.”
