TnI Sx 1E-i of Jesus may be responsible for spreading education and faith across the world, but, until now, its role
in making tasty wine has never been recognised.
Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan, president of the Pontifical Council for Health Pastoral Care, has visited a Jesuit winery in Australia to pay tribute to the work of an emeritus winemaker.
He presented Jesuit Brother John May with a Vatican medal, blessed by Pope Bene
diet XVI, in recognition of his work for the Catholic Church.
The medal is number 432 of only 6,000, minted to commemorate the first year of Benedict's pontificate.
The delegation toured the Sevenhill winery in Clare Valley, and lunch on the lawn was served with bottles of Sevenhill Riesling and Shiraz.
