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.

L.S., Fort Smith, Ark.


  

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

St. Pio of Pietrelcina

Francesco was born in the small Italian village of Pietrelcina on May 25, 1887. His parents, Grazio Forgione and Maria Giuseppa Di Nunzio, were peasant farmers, but they recognized their son was close to God. When he was only five years old, he solemnly consecrated himself to Jesus. It is said he often spoke with Our Lord, Our Lady and his guardian angel, who defended him against attacks by the devil. He joined the Capuchin Franciscans at the age of fifteen, and took the name Pio with his religious vows. After seven years of study he was ordained to the priesthood in 1910.

During the same month he was ordained, Padre Pio was praying in the chapel when Our Lord and His Blessed Mother appeared and gave him the Stigmata. However, the wounds soon faded and then disappeared. “I do want to suffer, even to die of suffering,” Padre Pio told Our Lady, “but all in secret." Soon after, he experienced the first of his spiritual ecstasies.

Pio was in the military for a short time, but was discharged due to poor health. Upon his return to the monastery, he became a spiritual director. He had five rules for spiritual growth: weekly confession, daily Communion, spiritual reading, meditation, and examination of conscience. He often advised, "Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry."

In July of 1918, Padre Pio received the visible Stigmata, the five wounds of Christ (hands, feet and side), after offering himself as a victim for the end of the war. By 1933, the holy priest was recognized by the Church and by 1934 had attracted thousands of pilgrims that attended his masses and frequented his confessional.

On September 23, 1968, Padre Pio said his final Mass, renewed his vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience and died in his cell after suffering from grave physical decline. Before his death, Padre Pio orchestrated and oversaw the building of the “House for the Alleviation of Suffering,” a 350-bed medical and religious center.

He was canonized on June 16, 2002 by Pope John Paul II. An estimated 300,000 people attended the canonization ceremony.

The Power of a Picture

“What is that?” Asked a curious voice as America Needs Fatima custodian Jose Ferraz stepped into the hotel elevator in Altamonte Springs, Florida. “This is the Pilgrim statue of Our Lady of Fatima,” replied Mr. Ferraz, “I take Her to visit people in their homes to spread the Fatima message.” He then handed the woman, who was a maid at the hotel, America Needs Fatima’s most popular picture. “This is a picture of Her.” The woman gasped. “I know that picture! It inspired a conversion.” She then asked excitedly, “Do you have a minute to hear the story?”

As Mr. Ferraz listened, he learned that the woman, Maria Vegra, had a 22-year old son who had recently passed away after three weeks in the hospital due to a fatal injury received in a car accident. While in the hospital, a priest would visit him every day to administer Holy Communion. The priest consistently offered the sacrament to the neighboring patient of Maria’s son, another young man who was also in critical condition. The young man would say, “No. I don’t believe in God.” But the priest continued to offer salvation. “Let me hear your confession and give you Holy Communion and Last Rights,” the priest said, “it will save your soul and get you to heaven.” Time after time, the young man stubbornly refused.

During the weeks of hospitalization and fruitless medical treatments, Maria had taken her son a picture of Our Lady of Fatima a friend had given her from an America Needs Fatima mailing.

She knew Our Lady’s watchful gaze would give her son peace in his last days. The day after she placed Our Lady’s picture at the foot of her son’s bed, she heard the voice of his stubborn neighbor: “please,” he said, “bring the picture closer to me. I want to look at the Lady.” 

Surprised but willing, Maria placed the picture in the middle of the two suffering men. 

After three days of letting the nearby picture of Our Lady touch his heart as he gazed into Her eyes, the suffering patient relented. “Please,” he called out, “bring me the priest. I want to receive the sacraments.”

A few days later, the young man died a Catholic. With a simple picture of Our Lady of Fatima, God touched a heart and saved a soul.
