Traveling statue of Our Lady of Fatima

In his announcements at the end of the mass for the Assumption of Mary, Fr. Joe Tran mentioned that we do not have to go to Portugal for this centennial of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima because she was coming visit us.  The statue of Our Lady of Fatima will be in various parishes in the bay area from now until August 27.  Look here for a schedule of dates and parishes.


O Queen of the Rosary, Sweet Virgin of Fatima,
who has deigned to appear in the land of Portugal,
we beg you to watch over our dear homeland and assure its moral and spiritual revival.

Bring back peace to all the nations of the world so that all, our own nation in particular,
may be happy to call you their Queen and the Queen of Peace. Amen.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for our country.

Our Lady of Fatima, obtain for all humanity a lasting peace.
