My mom couldn’t forget the lady that appeared in her dream and so when she fully recovered, she and my dad scoured all the shops that sell religious images in Baclaran until they found the exact replica of her. She was Our Lady of Fatima. They brought her home and to this day, She holds a special place in our altar.
Over the years, in good times and in bad, we would kneel before her to pray the rosary, imploring Her help, and seeking Her intercession. She is the one who taught me to believe, adore, and love God even more especially during my moments of grief and sorrow.
In this extraordinary time of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty, the rosary that She taught us to pray continues to bring us hope and comfort.
Our Lady of Fatima, please intercede for us and for the whole world.
