ARLINGTON, Va. (CNS) — Ana-Maria Cordoba, a wife and mother, an active Catholic parishioner and an employee of the Arlington Diocese, who died in a train crash in Spain July 24, was remembered by friends for the love she brought to every aspect of her life. Cordoba was killed in a train derailment that left 80 dead and more than 100 injured in the Galicia region of northwest Spain. She was traveling with her husband, Felipe, and the couple's daughter, Christina, a senior at Bishop O'Connell High School in Arlington. The Cordobas' son, Santiago, had just completed a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, and the three family members were en route to meet him. Felipe and Christina Cordoba were among the injured and were listed in stable condition at the local hospital. The Cordobas are members of St. Ambrose Parish in Annandale, Va. Father Andrew Fisher, pastor of St. Ambrose, described the love that Cordoba expressed in everything she did throughout her life. "The family was always doing things for others by volunteering in the parish and playing an active role in the school," he said. Ana-Maria and her husband have two teenage kids of their own, but in a lot of ways, they take on the responsibilities of mother and father to most of the young people of our parish." At least 38 pilgrims killed in crash after visiting Padre Pio shrine VATICAN CITY (CNS) — At least 38 pilgrims were killed on their way home from the Padre Pio shrine when their bus plunged off an elevated highway. Another 19 people were reported seriously injured, including passengers of nearby vehicles. Only 11 people were pulled alive from the wreckage, Vatican Radio and other news outlets reported, noting that a number of the victims were children. The accident occurred along a major highway in Irpinia, a mountainous region in Campania, in southern Italy, July 28. A tour bus of about 50 pilgrims was heading back to Naples after a three-day pilgrimage to Catholic shrines, including Pietralcina, birthplace of Padre Pio. The bus driver lost control, skidded along concrete barriers until it broke through a guardrail and plunged 100 feet off the highway. While the cause of the accident was still unknown July 29, officials said a piece of the bus's transmission was found less than a mile from the crash site, suggesting the vehicle was damaged in some way. The funerals for all 38 victims were to be held July 30 in the town of Pozzuoli. {gallery width=100 height=100}gallery/2013/0802/newsbriefs/{/gallery}
