It Is Midday

On the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God… wishing all our visitors a happy and blessed new year 2011.

It is Midday


It is midday. I see the church open. I must enter. Mother of Jesus Christ, I do not come to pray. I have nothing to ask and nothing to offer. I come only, Mother, to look at you.

To look at you, to cry for joy, to know that I am your son and that you are there. Only for a moment while everything stops. Midday!

To be yours, Mary in this place where you are. Saying nothing, but looking at you and letting my heart sing in its own language…

Because it is midday, because we are here today, because you are always there, simply because you are Mary, simply because you exist, Mother of Jesus, be thanked.

Pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima

Fatima Shrine, Lewinston, NY

Fatima Shrine, Lewinston, NY

The origin of the word “sanctuary” comes from the Latin sancturarium derived from saunctus which in turn means “holy.” That is to say the choir’s place located around the altar, which is where the liturgical celebrations and especially the Eucharist take place.

The religious act that constitutes a pilgrimage is a concrete gesture of a Christian’s desire to meet God : “Pilgrims often come to shrines particularly well-disposed to seek the grace of forgiveness; they should be helped to open themselves to the Father “rich in mercy” (Eph 2:4),(31) in truth and in freedom, consciously and responsibly, so that their encounter with his grace will give rise to a truly new life.” (Cf. The Shrine: Memory, Presence and Prophecy of the Living God)

In this spirit of pilgrimage to meet God through the intercession of Mary, two different groups visited the shrine of Our Lady of Fatima located in Lewiston, New York, accompanied by Father Julio Ubbelhode for a day retreat on the importance of Marian devotion.
