Nicholas Mak with a Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady


We Custodians many times leave a visit without knowing how grace was working inside the souls of the attendees. In fact, I experienced such a visit in San Francisco, California. There was nothing unusual about the visit. The small group that assembled was quiet and attentive. Nothing remarkable seemed to happen, yet grace was moving behind the scenes.

 

Priest giving absolution

Months later, the hostess of the visit mailed a letter to the America Needs Fatima office in Kansas. She wrote she had been extremely moved by the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, and had consequently decided to go back to the Church and confess for the first time in 50 years. She concluded her letter with, “I feel so blessed she helped me find my way.”

 

 People often ask me if Our Lady has done any miracles through the statue. I answer that no “sensational” type of miracle has happened with the statue. However, Scripture teaches us that converting a soul is a miracle, and no small one at that. So the statue, or rather Our Lady through her statue, did a huge miracle in converting the hostess’ soul after 50 years away from the Church! Can you imagine living that long away from the Church?

 

Saint Ignatius says that we should do everything as if everything depended on men, but know full well that everything depends on God, and this is very much the attitude of Fatima Custodians as we travel with Our Lady, for she is really the one who does all the work.

St. John Damascene

John Damascene was born in Damascus, then under Muslim rule. Though imposing a poll tax and other conditions upon the Jews and Christians, the Muslims of Damascus were, for the most part, tolerant, allowing both Jews and Christians to occupy important posts, and amass fortune.

Among the officials at the khalif’s court in 675 was a Christian called John, chief of the revenue department. The father of our saint, he was surnamed al-Mansur by the Arabs, a name the family carried.

The younger John was born around 690, baptized in infancy, and, as he grew, had a tutor named Cosmas, a wise man of letters, whom the Arabs had brought back from Sicily among other captives. Young John had an adopted brother also called Cosmas, and both became the pupils of the Sicilian sage, who taught them the natural sciences and theology.

John succeeded his father in his office at the court and worked there, free to practice his Faith, and respected for his virtues. After some years, he resigned his post, and, with his brother Cosmas, joined the monastery of St. Sabas.

As monks, John and Cosmas used their spare time to write books and poetry, which occupation rather scandalized their brethren.

Better appreciated by the Patriarch of Jerusalem, John V, the brothers joined his clergy. Cosmas was eventually consecrated bishop of Majuma serving his flock admirably, and also reaching sainthood. John, after being ordained, served for a while in Jerusalem, but then returned to his monastery. He wrote extensively in defense of icons against the iconoclasts, incurring the ill will of upholders of the heresy in high places.

St. John wrote works of theology and poetry at St. Sabas where he died a very old man.

He was proclaimed Doctor of the Church in 1890.
