Fatima Home Visit Banner

 

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!!

February 24

God wishes to be served
to the last breath, to the exhaustion of the last drop of strength,
and He multiplies our capacities for suffering and doing
so that our dedication may reach the extreme limit
of the unforeseeable, the improbable, the miraculous.
The measure of the love of God is
to love Him without measure, said Saint Francis de Sales.
The measure of fighting for God consists
in fighting without measure, it may be said.

Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira

St. Praetextatus

Praetextatus became the bishop of Rouen, France, in 549. The thirty-five years during which he occupied the position of bishop were riddled with troubles involving the Frankish monarchy, a result of which was a time of exile for the saint.
Among the players of this political drama was Fredegund, mistress of King Chilperic, a murderous woman responsible for several deaths in the royal family. Fredegund despised Praetextatus and opposed his return from exile, but a council in Rouen overruled her interference and reinstated the holy bishop to his see.

“The time is coming when you shall revisit the place of your exile.” She threatened the saint shortly before his death. “I was a bishop always, whether in exile or out of exile, and a bishop I shall remain; but as for you, you shall not always enjoy your crown.” He said, as he urged the queen to convert.

The wicked queen refused to reform her life, and in 586 as Praetextatus was offering Holy Mass, Fredegund had an assassin stab him under the arm. The mortally wounded bishop managed to drag himself to the altar and receive Holy Communion before he died.

Holding Hands with The “Gate of Heaven”


Of all the invocations to our Lady, Gate of Heaven is one of the most beautiful. This title gained a new meaning for me when I arrived for a Fatima home visit at the house of Dominique McGuire and found her in tears. Her mother, Marie Jeannine Michel, a native from Haiti, had suffered a massive heart attack the day before and was now dying.

I was more than happy to take the statue to visit her at Rex Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was painfully clear, when we arrived in the Intensive Care Unit, that this poor soul was reaching the end.

Over the next couple of hours we prayed numerous rosaries, litanies and the prayers for the dying by her bedside. We also struggled to provide the dying women with all the spiritual assistance we could.

As we prayed, the attending nurse, who happened to be Catholic, kept calling local Churches to find a priest who would administer last rites. Whenever she entered the room to care for Mrs. Michel she would join in the responses to the Hail Mary. Overwhelmed by the scene, she exclaimed, “I hope when I am dying someone will bring the statue to visit me and pray the rosary.”

Moments before the priest arrived, Dominique asked me if I had an extra scapular for her mother. I did not. As the priest administered the last rites I scurried from the room in search of this precious sacramental, only to find I was the only person wearing one. Mrs. Michel was in much more need of it than me, so with the help of a doctor we temporarily removed her oxygen mask and placed my scapular around the dying woman’s neck. Dominique then took her Miraculous Medal and pinned it on to the scapular.

The most moving part of this visit occurred when Mrs. Michel opened her eyes and showed signs she wanted to speak. When they removed the oxygen mask, Dominique told her mother, in their native tongue, that “Momma Mary” was in the room.

Since Mrs. Michel seemed to be already looking into eternity, with a type of “fog of death” in her gaze, I carried the statue over next to her bed. Surprisingly she reached up and took hold of our Lady’s hands and held on for some moments. The oxygen mask was then replaced as the nurse administered morphine to deaden the pain she was experiencing.

Mrs. Michel died at 6:00 AM the following morning with Dominique praying beside her bed.

While the America Needs Fatima home visitation program is a very rewarding apostolate, nothing on earth compares to the satisfaction of a visit like this. A person going through such a moving ordeal, however, could naturally ask, “Was there something more we could have done?”

In the case of Mrs. Michel, the answer is a resounding no. She received the last rites of Holy Mother Church, was clothed in the brown Scapular, and was almost continuously surrounded by the melodious sound of the Angelic Salutation.

Hours before she passed into eternity, Mrs. Michel also had the grace to hold hands with She who truly is the Gate of Heaven.
