Our Lady of Fatima statue and smiling group. The Fatima Home Visitation Program includes a lively presentation of the Fatima Message, recitation of the Rosary, and a formal crowning of the beautiful 48” statue of Our Lady. Many attest that Fatima Home Visits are occasions of graces, conversions, and even miracles.

I am very thankful to America Needs Fatima for giving me the privilege of having the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary in my house. It was really a blessing to my family and friends. I pray that in one way or another, the people who had a visit will also be touched and transformed by the message of Our Lady.

A Fatima Home Visit in my daughter’s home a couple of years ago changed our outlook on our lives and brought us back to Mother Mary. Thank you!

It was such a good feeling to be of service and to work to bring people together to pray to Our Lady! People went home happy and wanting to do it [a Fatima Home Visit] again.

Thank you for spreading the great message of Fatima at our home. One of our guests left the visit and went straight to confession. She hadn’t gone in years.

I had the pleasure of meeting two of your representatives, Matthew and Charles. They did a Fatima Home Visit at the home of a friend of mine. It is inspirational to see such dedication! Thank you for your wonderful mission and all who make it possible.

I recently had the honor of a home visitation by our wonderful Mother and her kind and loving custodians. It was such a wonderful and happy occasion. We had about 50 people present, and many had not been to Mass or said the Rosary in many years. After our Mother’s visit, they started going back to Mass and saying the rosary! I can’t thank you enough for bringing our Mother to our home. She was truly needed by all present.

Three days after the Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima graced our home, we heard from our daughter after more than two years of searching and praying for her. I continue to say the daily Rosary in thanksgiving for this blessing and the many graces that continue to follow.

It was a beautiful and memorable experience, one I'll never forget. We want Her back!

C.C., Caruthers, CA


  

The audiovisual presentation and talk were informative, interesting and professional. All the children participated in saying the rosary - even one of my grandchildren who has been away from the church. My grandchild was so excited when the statue was unveiled that he ran up with arms raised and cried out, “Mama, Mama!” You can tell that the custodian loves his job bringing Our Lady's message: he was very knowledgeable and gracious. May God bless him and ANF abundantly for the mission of bringing people to Jesus through Mary!"

We had a house full of people, and the entire stairwell in the living room was covered with children. Everyone agreed it was a grace-filled event. The men bringing the statue are very edifying. It is so consoling to see young men devoting their energies to a cause as noble as it is urgent.

BLESSINGS TO YOU!! On November 27th 2017, the statue of Our Lady of Fatima graced our home! I cannot begin to put into words what a wonderful experience it was! When the statue was placed on the'altar' we made for her, the custodian removed her velvet covering, and I fell to my knees in exaltation of her presence....she was BEYOND BEAUTIFUL!!! My heart was then filled with such joy when I was invited to place her crown upon her head!!! I was so humbled!! How UNWORTHY I am to crown our Mother!! But such an honor!! The two hours flew by as we prayed and heard the Fatima message. Mother answered many prayers of ours, and when she left, my heart went with her!! The custodians were so kind and wonderful to talk with...and we cannot wait to have our Mother come again... PRAISE JESUS FOR THE BEAUTIFUL GIFT OF HIS BEAUTIFUL MOTHER, AND GOD BLESS ALL AT ANF!!

K.K., Iron River, MI

April 9

 

Outpourings of affection for God,
of resting in His presence,
of good feelings toward everyone and sentiments and prayers like these …
are suspect
if they do not express themselves in practical love
which has real effects.

St. Waudru or Waldetrudis

Waldedrudis, or Waudru in French, was the daughter of the Duke of Lorraine, St. Walbert and his wife St. Bertilia and closely related to the Merovingian royal family. Her sister, St. Aldegundis of Maubeuge, was a foundress and abbess.

Waldedrudis was married to the noble St. Vincent Madelgar, Count of Hainault with whom she had four children, all of them canonized saints.

Although her family life was serene and exemplary, she suffered much from the slander of others, and from severe interior trials and temptations. God, after some years, recompensed her fidelity with a holy peace, and great spiritual consolations.

Sometime after the birth of their fourth child, the Count Madelgar withdrew into the Benedictine Abbey of Haumont which he had founded, taking the name of Vincent. Waldedrudis retired to a small house where she lived a life of prayer, poverty and simplicity. Such was the influx of people seeking her counsel, however, that the holy matron eventually founded a convent around which grew the city of Mons in Belgium.

St. Waudru, as she is known in Belgium, was renowned for her works of charity and for the numerous miracles she performed during her life and after death. She is the patroness of Mons.

And He Stole Heaven

He hung on a cross that day, writhing in pain and discomfort, the infamous highwayman.
 
On his left hung another man, covered in the matted blood of his wounds. Yet, with the exception of a few intermittent words, there was no sound from him.

As time passed, the thief became more and more engrossed in the silent crucified beside him, and less and less in his own plight.St Dismas Picture

Indeed life is ironic, mused Dismas, this man who had lived in the open, and was acclaimed as a healer and even as a king, now hung beside him who had spent his life lurking and hiding.

And now they were lifted up, both on a high parallel. He could see the roof tops of the city, he could see the highways he had stalked, and he could see the way they had walked. Now he looked down on those gathered around this place of execution, the Roman soldiers, the Pharisees, the curious, the friends of the man beside him…and a young man supporting a lady directly beneath them...

And then he knew her; that upturned face, that maidenly majesty now wracked by sorrow, her tear-filled eyes fastened on the man on his left–Yes, he knew that face.

As the wheels of time rolled back in his mind,  his heart gave a jolt as he remembered that blessed day in the desert, decades ago, when a young family making its way to Egypt, sought refuge for the night in his family’s hovel. The man was strong and kind, the woman was the fairest his child’s eyes had seen, and she carried a golden haired babe, as if nothing in the universe was more precious.

He remembered the lady’s gaze on him, her beautiful eyes full of concern for the leprous sores on his young body. Then she and his mother talked. And next, he was being bathed in the same water the lady had just washed her infant son.

And then the sores were gone.  His mother wept for joy, and kissed the lady’s hands, and the baby’s feet. And even his robber-father was moved, and offered the strong man and his family the best in the house.

Now, in one revealing flash, he knew the identity of the wounded man on his left.  He looked again at the lady, and her eyes, those same sweet eyes of old, were on him once more.  
He felt his heart quiver, as the power of gratitude filled his being and softened his criminal soul.  And then came tears, rivers of tears.  When he could speak, he turned to the left,

“Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”

And the Lord turned his face to him, His divine eyes on him, and he heard the most beautiful voice he had ever heard, a voice at once full of pain and full of strength, full of sweetness and full of majesty, a judge’s voice, and a father’s voice,

“Amen, amen I say to you, today you shall be with me in paradise.”
