FR DAN TO VISIT FATIMA – 100 YEARS LATER
I am overjoyed to have been invited to lead a pilgrimage to the Marian shrines of Our Lade of Lourdes and Fatima. It was Our Lady of Fatima who was so instrumental to my call to the priesthood and still continues to remain close to my heart. To pilgrimage to this Holy Shrine for the 100th Anniversary of Mary’s apparition to Blessed Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco is truly a rose from heaven. To pilgrimage is a life-giving experience, and the effects are … Heavenly! You may have seen in the January issue of the Christ is our Hope magazine the following comments from Bishop Conlon. “One of the most rewarding experiences of my life has been making pilgrimages….I find it very rewarding to stand where great saints have stood, or even the Lord and His Blessed Mother, and to immerse myself in the mysteries of our faith. Some people might view such experiences as an extravagant use of time and money. Yet, is not our entire life here on earth really a pilgrimage?
