Franciscan Chapel Houses Our Lady of Fatima Statue for a Day

by Sister Julie Ann on July 28, 2014

She arrived by car. One of 4 traveling statues of Our Lady of Fatima, blessed by Pope Francis, our Lady’s  image was placed in our Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity St. Francis Chapel for 24 hours. Our Sisters took the time for visits to our Eucharistic Lord and to pray intercessory prayers to our Blessed Mother for peace in our world, conversion of heart for all people, courage for young people to follow their call unique call from God especially young women called to become Franciscan Sisters, etc.

St. Francis chapel home to Our Lady of FatimaSalve Regina and Immaculate Mary were sung on the arrival of the statue. We also gathered together to recite the rosary.

Bill Sockey, who accompanies the statue, also told the history of this apparition. Bill reminded us that in preparation for the apparitions of Our Lady, an Angel who called himself the Angel of Peace, first spoke to the children saying, “Don’t be afraid. I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.” The angel then knelt bending forward until his forehead touched the ground and prayed: “My God, I believe, I adore, and I love You! I beg pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You!” He repeated this prayer three times. When the angel stood he then said to the children: “Pray thus. The hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications.”
