  • Every year, thousands of families receive Our Lady's visit

  • invite our lady of fatima to your home today

 

1.      Why the Fatima visits?

We aim to bring Our Lady of Fatima into every home that wishes to learn more about Her message of conversion, prayer and penance. Many have either forgotten or are unfamiliar with what our Blessed Mother asked of us so that, as individuals and as a nation, we may participate in Her promise, “Finally, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!”

 

2.      What does a visitation of Our Lady’s Pilgrim Statue entail?

The visit begins with a short video presentation on the message of Fatima, followed by a group recitation of the Holy Rosary.  (We bring all the necessary equipment for the presentation.) Throughout the presentation, the custodian will give explanations, examples and answer questions.

 

3.      How long does the program last?

Generally, one to two hours.

 

4.      Who should lead the Rosary?

If present, a member of the clergy. Otherwise, we suggest the host, someone of your choice or even the Fatima custodian.

 

5.      Should I offer refreshments?

Although they are optional, most participants do welcome light refreshments. They offer an opportunity for further questions, conversation and a chance to meet people.

 

6.      What do I need to set up for the visit?

For Our Lady’s statue, we will need a small sturdy table or stand about three feet high. The surface area need not be large. It should be placed in your home’s largest room. Flowers and/or candles add a nice touch but are optional. We will also need an extra table at the back of the room or in an adjacent area to display our beautiful religious articles and informative books. 

 

7.      Whom should I invite?

Please remember that this visit could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn more about Our Lady and Her Fatima message. Our Pilgrim Statue has a history of touching hearts, and we believe yours will prove no exception! You will want to share the blessings of Her presence with as many people as possible. We suggest you begin by checking the names listed in your personal address book. Invite your relatives, friends, neighbors, co-parishioners or prayer group members. Everyone is welcome.

 

8.      What should I say to people when inviting them?

 Here is an example of an introduction:

“Hello,                      . This is                    . I’m calling to share some exciting news with you. The America Needs Fatima Pilgrim Virgin Statue is coming to our home on (date) at (time). This is a unique opportunity, and I feel privileged to have this special statue in our home. There will be an audio-visual presentation on the Fatima message and recitation of the Rosary, as Our Lady requested. We would love to have you join us.

 

9.      What do I do if things go wrong?

If anything changes or does not go as planned, do not hesitate to call our office at 1-888-460-7371. We will do all we can to accommodate.

 

10.    Should I suggest a dress code for those I invite to Our Lady’s visit?

Yes. Modest attire is deeply appreciated. How many of us dress with care when preparing for a job interview? What about for Our Lady? This wonderful occasion ought to be approached with the respect and reverence due to the Mother of God. Keep in mind  Jacinta’s warning, “Fashions will appear that will greatly offend Our Lord.”

 

P.S.   If possible, please leave an open parking spot in front of your home for the Fatima custodian’s car.

Jesus purified Magdalen and pardoned the triple denial of Peter.
He opened heaven to the good thief.
In truth, I assure you,
if Judas had gone to Him after the crime, Our Lord would have received him with mercy.
How, then, would He not pardon you as well?

The Book of Confidence—Fr. Thomas de Saint-Laurent

St. Apollinaris of Ravenna

Apollinaris was possibly born in Antioch, in the Roman province of Syria.

Consecrated bishop of Ravenna by St. Peter himself, he won many converts by his preaching, and the numerous miracles he wrought attracted the attention of the officials.

Furious with his success, the idolaters beat him cruelly and drove him from the city. The Christians found him half-dead on the seashore, and cared for and concealed him for a time. However, recaptured by the authorities, he was forced to walk on burning coals and then exiled from the city again.

Remaining in the vicinity, Apollinaris continued his work, journeying to the Roman province of Emilia.

Returning a third time to Ravenna, he was captured yet again and hacked with knives. Scalding water was poured on his wounds. He was beaten on the mouth with stones because of his persistence in preaching, flung into a dismal dungeon and left to starve. There, he continued performing miracles, teaching and preaching, silencing the oracles that dared to debate with him.

Imprisoned for three years, he was finally returned to Ravenna for a fourth time, and was martyred under the persecution unleashed by Emperor Vespasian. He died prophesizing that the persecutions would increase but that the Church would ultimately triumph.

The Rosary and the Possessed Girl

In his book, The Secret of the Rosary, St. Louis de Montfort relates that a Dominican, Father Jean Amat, was once giving a Lenten Mission in the Kingdom of Aragon, Spain, when a young girl, possessed by the devil was brought to him.

Father Amat began the exorcism. After several unsuccessful attempts, the priest had an idea; taking his Rosary, he looped it around the girl’s neck. 

No sooner had he done this, the girl began to squirm and scream and the devil, shouting through her mouth shrieked, “Take if off, take off; these beads are tormenting me!”

At last, moved to pity for the girl, the priest lifted the Rosary beads off her neck.

The next night, while the good Dominican lay in bed, the same devils who possessed the young girl entered his room. Foaming with rage, they tried to seize him, but he had his Rosary clasped in his hand and no efforts from the infernal spirits could wrench the blessed beads from him.

Then, going on the offensive and using the Rosary as a physical weapon, Fr. Amat scourged the demons crying out, “Holy Mary, Our Lady of the Rosary, help me, come to my aid!” at which the demons took flight.

The next day on his way to church, the priest met the poor girl, still possessed. One of the devils within her taunted him, “Well, brother, if you had been without your Rosary, we should have made short work of you…”

With renewed trust and vigor, the priest unlaced his Rosary from his belt, and flinging it around the girl’s neck commanded, “By the sacred names of Jesus and Mary His Holy Mother, and by the power of the holy Rosary, I command you, evil spirits, leave the body of this girl at once.”

The demons were immediately forced to obey him, and the young girl was freed.

“These stories,” concludes St. Louis de Montfort, “show the power of the holy Rosary in overcoming all sorts of temptations from the evil spirits and all sorts of sins because these blessed beads of the Rosary put devils to rout.”
