  1. Fatima 100th Anniversary (1917-2017)For the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal, Pope Francis has decided to grant a plenary indulgence opportunity throughout the entire anniversary year, which began 27th November 2016, and will end 26th November 2017.
    To obtain the plenary indulgence, the faithful must fulfil ordinary conditions: go to Confession, receive Holy Communion, be detached from sin (even venial), pray for the intentions of the Holy Father (Our Father and Hail Mary would suffice); and complete prescribed indulgenced work, as stated in official document of the Shire of Fatima.
    National tour (around England and Wales Cathedrals) of a pilgrim statue of Our Lady of Fatima and the relics of two of the visionaries (Saint Francisco and Jacinta) may be good opportunity to obtain plenary indulgence. More details on following website.

  2. The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Tuesday 15th August)The feast of the Assumption reminds us that Mary is in heaven body and soul. She is glorified also in her body along with body of her divine Son Jesus. Why? It is because on earth the body of our divine Savour and the body of the Immaculate Mother Mary were sanctified to the maximum degree. The present life is for eternity and our happiness is proportionate to our goodness on earth. And Mary our mother will help us to lead a good and holy life.

  3. Blessed Pope Pius IX’s testimony on his deathbed:The Rosary is a compendium of the Gospel, and gives to those who pray it those rivers of peace of which the Scriptures speak; it is the most beautiful devotion, the most abundant in grace, and the most pleasing to the Heart of Mary. My sons, let this be the testimony by which you remember me on earth.
