THE PILGRIM VIRGIN STATUE OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA-2017 IS THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE APPARITIONS OF OUR LADY AT FATIMA.
In 1917, Our Blessed Mother appeared to three children, Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco in Fatima, Portugal. She appeared on the 13th of the month from May 1917 to October 1917.
In 1946, Pope Pius XII sent his Papal Legate to bless the first Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima. He said he was crowning her “Queen of the World”. Since then thousands of smaller statues have been blessed. They are used for the home visitation program. Our Lady’s visit is a special time of grace.
The Legion of Mary is scheduling the statue in homes. Two members would bring the statue and say the opening prayers and Rosary with you. The prayers are said for your intentions. At the end of the week concluding prayers are said and the Legion of Mary members bring the statue to the next home. If you would like to schedule the statue, or for more information, please call Ann McCarthy #484-924-8308 or Mary Zeglin #610-296-5012.
