Our Lady of Fatima is here!
Cascais (Portugal). On Tuesday, October 15, Our Lady of Fatima passed through the streets of the city. The statue, carried in procession on the shoulders of different representatives of the educating community, reached the main court-yard of the institute of Our Lady of the Rosary and was welcomed, with great enthusiasm and devotion, by pupils, teachers and parents. The directress, Sr. São read a message of welcome. The children of the infant school covered the statue of Our Lady with rose petals and sang, while waving coloured scarves, to express their joy and gratitude. In the chapel, the young people and all the nearby parish communities gathered in prayer round the altar. Holding hands they recited the Holy Rosary.
Everyone in the intimacy of their own heart, praised Mary for her presence among them and entrusted themselves to her. Mary our help, protect this community and rekindle in the heart of each one the Da mihi anima cetera tolle.
