Words of reflection on the Marian Pilgrimage

Standard

Words from Father Dennis Arechiga.  the Spiritual Director of the recent Marian Pilgrimage (October 31- November 11, 2011)

“The highlight of my Marian Pilgrimage so far has been leading a decade of the rosary in English at a night rosary procession in Fatima.   Celebrating Mass twice at the exact site Mary appeared to the visionaries Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta was also quite special and surreal.  At Fatima the message is to pray fervently for peace and the conversion of sinners and to offer sacrifices to the Lord.  In Paris we visited Notre Dame, (Sacre Couer) Sacred Heart and the Chapel of the miraculous medal where St. Catherine Laboure saw a vision of Mary extending her hands in prayer for the world.  This pilgrimage is a reminder of the power of intercessory prayer and of how drawing closer to Mary always leads us into deeper union with Christ. “
