Most Catholics will be aware that the 100 year centennial of the apparitions at Fatima took place this year. The messages given by the Blessed Virgin
at Fatima are most poignant for those who have devotion to the Holy Rosary, and a desire to save souls by means of the Rosary prayer.
I had hoped I could have posted more statues of her which we have repaired this year, alas - I have only two!
It made me wonder if she isn't as well - known as I had thought.
Happily though, I know that Mr. Power was delighted to have his cherished figure of Our lady restored to her former beauty.
The outdoor resin figure of Our lady of Fatima was restored and repainted
for a school of the same name. The local Bishop blessed the statue and the school celebrated its 50 year anniversary. I do pray that the children of the school will cherish the story of Fatima, and take the rosary devotion to their hearts.
