The Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima
St. Thomas Aquinas Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima Home Visitation
The goal is to spend time with Our Lady as a family, or as a prayer group. Your prayers are united with all families and friends, praying for the sanctification of Marriages and family life; the renewal of our parish and the universal Church; for the conversion of sinners; and other intentions including receiving abundant graces from pilgrim virgin motherly visit.
The basic idea of “The Pilgrim Virgin” is this: Most people are unable to make a pilgrimage to Fatima. However, Our Lady, as a loving mother, overcomes this difficulty by making a pilgrimage to any home opened to receive her graces and blessings from her maternal presence.
Since, Our Lady, through the Rosary, always brings us closer to Christ, we highly recommend a five decades daily recitation of the rosary before The Pilgrim Virgin as a family. The vocal recitation should be accompanied by pious meditation on the mysteries provided in the booklet inside the bag. Again, you are encouraged to invite other relatives, friends, any religious or priests to join you in the recitation of the rosary and leading a reflection on the messages of Fatima.
You can enter your intentions into the “Book of Intentions” which will travel with the statue. Also, if you receive any graces, miracles, or any healings through the Pilgrim Mother’s intercessions, please share your experiences with us by writing down in the “Book of Graces Received” also found in the luggage carring the statue of Our Lady.
