Our Lady of Fatima Visits San Francisco

Gentle Friends this past Saturday, in addition to all the usual running around we do, we also got the chance to see the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima.  (You can click and read all about the Mission)  The church we attend, Most Holy Redeemer, was one of the stops in the city so we made a visit in the afternoon.  I got some snaps......  here's the best of the bunch....

...  it was quiet in the sanctuary while we were there, with about 15 or so other visitors, it is a lovely statue sculpted in 1947 after the description by the three children who saw Our Lady in 1917.  You can click HERE and see some other snaps of the visit to MHR, and our own Father Brian.

I also got some shots of a couple of the stained glass windows in the santuary.....

There you go sports fans - short and sweet today, thanks again for stopping by, do stop again!!  I also wanted to thank you for the input, I think I'll just stick to what has worked for my Blog for the past 8 or so years.

Take care,
edgar

As a portuguese it is amazing to see how far our Lady of Fatima travels. Fatima is a small town in Portugal but it is really an emotional place especially when we are near the Santuary . The churches there are also beatiful, and I'm sure that somewhere, either in Portugal or in the world there is a beatiful cross stitch made reproducing Our Lady.

Interesting to read about your church. It is beautiful. Are you planning on selling some of your cross-stitch art at the Art Sale? Would love to see some pictures of the sale if it is allowed.

I would dearly, dearly LOVE to see her. To a Catholic, as you know, she is a very integral part of our faith. Thank you so very, very much for sharing this with us Edgar. May she bless you and Rico for your visit :)
