Image Title: Order for a Parish Visitation

Description: This engraving illustrates the visit of a bishop to a parish church. While visiting, he gives the local congregation a solemn blessing and, during the liturgy, tells them the reasons why he has come to see them (e.g., to ascertain whether or not the local church is being well governed, to perform the sacrament of confirmation, and so on).
