Panama was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Bishops of Panama have consecrated on March 5, their country to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in the presence of one of the Pilgrim Virgin Statues coming from the Shrine of Fatima to visit the country for a month.

The visitation program was assisted by the World Apostolate of Fatima of the country that considered this to be a great privilege and also an opportunity to begin preparing the World Youth Day of year 2019, that will be hosted in Panama.

The original hymn “Your Immaculate Heart will Triumph”, in Spanish, composed by Cheli Boyd, a singer from Panamá, has also been presented during this visitation and is a true inspiration for the Centennial of Fatima. The song can be listened here with the footage of the Pilgrim’s statue visit to Panama.

During the centennial year, the World Apostolate of Fatima is promoting various activities to highlight the relevance of the Fatima event for our times. In the Czech Republic, there will be the visit of the Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady and a Fatima Symposium, in October 2017. Information can be found here:

Pilgrim Statue of our Lady of Fatima crowned in London

On Saturday 18th February 2017, the Westminster Cathedral, in London, received the visit of the national Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima and the relics of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta Marto. This event promoted by the World Apostolate of Fatima in England and Wales marked the beginning of the Fatima Centennial celebrations and the journey of Our Lady’s statue around the cathedrals of the country, during this year.    

On this occasion, the Pilgrim Virgin Statue, blessed in 1967 by Pope Paul VI, in Fatima was solemnly crowned by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, with a new silvergilt Centenary Crown. This very special crown, blessed by Bishop Antonio Marto, of the diocese of Leiria-Fatima, was created and offered by Casa Leitão, the same Portuguese firm that in 1942, also made the rich bejewelled crown for the statue of Our Lady of Fatima venerated in the Chapel of the Apparitions. At the end, Cardinal Vincent led the prayer of consecration of England and Wales to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Thousands of Catholics from across England and Wales filled the cathedral for Mass and some others had to stay outside, for there were no more places available.  

The event was closed with a Fatima Symposium held in the Cathedral Hall, with guest speakers who addressed the meaning and relevance of the Fatima message for today’s world.
