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

Obedience is a virtue
of so excellent a nature, that
Our Lord was pleased to mark its observance
upon the whole course of His life; thus
He often says, He did not come to do His Own will,
but that of His Heavenly Father.

St. Francis de Sales

St. John Baptist de Rossi

Giovanni Battista de Rossi was born in the Piedmontese village of Voltaggio, in the diocese of Genoa, and was one of four children. His parents, of modest means, were devout and well esteemed.

A nobleman and his wife vacationing in Voltaggio, and impressed with the ten-year-old John Baptist, obtained permission from his parents to take him to live with them and be trained in their house in Genoa.

After three years, hearing of his virtues, John’s cousin, Lorenzo Rossi, Canon of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, invited him to join him in Rome. Thus John Baptist entered the Roman Jesuit College at thirteen. Despite episodes of epilepsy, brought on by excessive zeal in imposing harsh penances upon himself, he was granted a dispensation and was ordained at the age of twenty-three.

From his student days he loved visiting hospitals. Now, as a priest there was much more he could offer suffering souls. He particularly loved the Hospice of St. Galla, a night shelter for paupers. There he labored for forty years. He also worked at the hospital of Trinita dei Pellegrini and extended his assistance to other poor such as cattlemen who came to market at the Roman forum. He had a great pity for homeless women and girls and from the little that he made in Mass stipends, and the 400 scudi sent to him by the Pope, he rented a refuge for them.

John Baptist was also selected by Pope Benedict XIV to deliver courses of instruction to prison officials and other state servants. Among his penitents was the public hangman.

In 1731 Canon Rossi obtained for his cousin a post of assistant priest at St. Maria in Cosmedin. He was a great confessor to whom penitents flocked, and as a preacher, the saint was also in demand for missions and retreats.

On the death of Canon Rossi, Fr. John inherited his canonry, but applied the money attached to the post to buy an organ, and hire an organist. As to the house, he gave it to the chapter and went to live in the attic.

In 1763 St. John Baptist’s health began to fail, and he was obliged to take up residence in the hospital of Trinita dei Pellegrini. He expired after a couple of strokes on May 23, 1764 at sixty- six years of age. He died so poor that the hospital prepared to pay for his burial. But the Church took over and he was given a triumphant funeral with numerous clergy and religious, and the Papal choir, in attendance.

Visiting a Muslim Family

Fatima custodians often meet people who know little or nothing about the Catholic faith.  A few years ago I had such an experience in Florida. 

Upon arrival at the home, an elderly grandmother with a group of young children and teens met me at the door. The group was sullen as I brought in the statue, set up the projector and began the introduction.  Unknown to me, I was speaking to a Muslim family.

At a certain point, one of the teens vehemently objected to the phrase “Mother of God” and accused me of blasphemy since Jesus was not God. Quickly the visit became an interesting defense of the Catholic faith. After answering several more objections to the best of my ability, my Islamic hosts allowed me to explain the Rosary, with an attentive audience, I proceeded to pray alone.

After reciting the Rosary, the attendants and I listened to the hostess, who explained why she had assembled the family for the visit.

Several weeks ago, she was hospitalized for a serious illness. She felt alone and abandoned until one day a stranger walked in with a bouquet of flowers, placed it by the bedside and stayed to listen to all of her concerns. The stranger returned repeatedly to renew her flowers, fix her pillows and talk to her. Then the Muslim mother questioned the stranger’s motives, explaining that her own family wasn’t visiting her. The stranger replied that she was a Catholic and Catholics are encouraged to visit the sick.

Requesting more information about the Catholic faith, the mother was told that it was against hospital policy to discuss religion and therefore she would have to search for information on her own.

Upon her release from the hospital, my hostess entered a nearby Catholic church and encountered an America Needs Fatima flier about Our Lady of Fatima. She called the number and set up a home visit to which she then invited her family.

I may never know what has happened to the family, but I regularly pray that their interest in Catholicism has brought them into the folds of the Catholic Church. Of one thing I am certain: Our Lady will never abandon those who invite her into their homes.
