101st Anniversary of the Apparitions at Fatima
On October 13th, 2017 was the 101st Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions. The Legion of Mary sponsored a parade from Saint Martins Monastery to the Church of St. Joseph while saying the Holy Rosary. The Statue of Our Lady of Fatima was crowned by a child at the Church of St. Joseph and then afterwards was Benediction.
“According to the belief and experience of many pilgrims, if not of all, Fatima is more than anything this mantle of Light that protects us, here as in almost no other place on earth. We need but take refuge under the protection of the Virgin Mary and to ask her, as the Salve Regina teaches: “show unto us… Jesus.”’ – Pope Francis, 13 May 2017, Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima
