100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima!

May 23, 2017
23 May 2017

 

100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima! In a continuation of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, the Cathedral will have the statue of Our Lady of Fatima displayed for veneration the 12-14th of each month through October.

Plenary Indulgence

This is a great opportunity to obtain the plenary indulgence granted by Pope Francis for the centennial year. There are three ways to obtain the indulgence, detailed in a statement from the Fatima Shrine in Portugal (see below).

To obtain the plenary indulgence, the faithful must also fulfill the ordinary conditions: go to Confession and Communion, be interiorly detached from sin, and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.

  1. To the faithful who make a pilgrimage to the Fatima Shrine in Portugal and participate in a celebration of prayer dedicated to the Virgin. In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke the Mother of God.
  2. Pray before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima
    To the faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October 2017, and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary. In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima.
  3. The elderly and infirm
    To the faithful who, because of age, illness or other serious cause, are unable to get around, may pray in front of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima and must spiritually unite themselves to the jubilee celebrations on the days of the apparitions, the 13th of each month, between May and October 2017. They must also “offer to merciful God with confidence, through Mary, their prayers and sufferings or the sacrifices they make in their own lives.”

Bring Our Lady to Your Home for a Visit!

If you would like to have a special week in your home venerating Our Lady of Fatima, you may sign up to have this beautiful statue in your home. A sign-up sheet is at the back of the church, or contact Patricia Bascom at (843) 367-7007.

Our-Lady-of-Fatima

 

On the 100th anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady of Fatima, a great way to celebrate is to pray the novena to Our Lady of Fatima:


Most Holy Virgin, who has deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three little shepherds the treasures of graces hidden in the recitation of the Rosary, inspire our hearts with sincere love of this devotion.

     By meditating on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in your Rosary, may we gather the fruits contained therein and obtain the conversion of sinners, the conversion of Russia, the Peace of Christ for the world, and this favor that I so earnestly seek of you in this novena….

(here mention your request)

     I ask this of you, for the greater glory of God, for your own honor and for the good of all people. Amen

Say the
Our Father,
Hail Mary
Glory Be (three times each)
