Papal Honors recognize those who are outstanding examples of lifelong selflessness and distinguished service to others. These are special expressions of papal praise and gratitude of the Holy Father and the entire Catholic community. On November 4th, the Benemerenti Honor was conferred upon Angie Romagosa for her 32 years of dedicated efforts preventing homelessness for struggling families and aiding the homeless community in Seminole County.
The Benemerenti Medal was originally established by the Pope as an award for soldiers in the late 18th century. The medal was later extended to members of the clergy and laity for exceptional service to the community and the Roman Catholic Church. It can be granted to persons as young as 35 and its reception is open to Catholics as well as members of other faith traditions.
