THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
“The gates of Ta Pinu Shrine are opened to all”
At Our Lady Ta’Pinu Shrine,we are preparing ourselves for one of the Main Events recommended by Pope Francis and the organising committee at The Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal :- The Centennial Celebration of the Sixth and Final Celebration of the Apparition of the Blessed Virgin at Fatima:
THE MIRACLE OF THE SUN
As for the children, they made their way to the Cova amid the adulation and skepticism which had followed them since May. When they arrived they found critics who questioned their veracity and the punctuality of the Lady, who had promised to arrive at noon. It was well passed noon by the official time of the country. However, when the sun arrived at its zenith the Lady appeared as she had said she would.
“What do you want of me?”
I want a chapel built here in my honor. I want you to continue saying the Rosary every day. The war will end soon, and the soldiers will return to their homes.
“Yes. Yes.” “Will you tell me your name?”
I am the Lady of the Rosary.
“I have many petitions from many people. Will you grant them?”
Some I shall grant, and others I must deny. People must amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend our Lord any more, for He is already too much offended!
“And is that all you have to ask?”
There is nothing more.
As the Lady of the Rosary rises toward the east she turns the palms of her hands toward the dark sky. While the rain had stopped, dark clouds continued to obscure the sun, which suddenly bursts through them and is seen to be a soft spinning disk of silver.
“Look at the sun!”
From this point two distinct apparitions were seen, that of the phenomenon of the sun seen by the 70,000 or so spectators and that beheld by the children alone.
I’m sure that it would not be too boastful to say that there cannot be a better place in Victoria to bring this celebration to light than at this Marian Shrine (once described as the “the Beacon of Light and Love” of the Western area.
To the image of the celebration being hosted in Portugal, we are planning to hold a- fifteen days of prayers and reflection. So, together with the surrounding parishes of the Western Regions, we would like to seek your assistance to “spread the word”.
To Kick off the Centennial Festivities , we feel so excited about “welcoming’ THE FORT COCHIN COMMUNITY FOR THE THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEARS OF CELEBRATION OF THE FEAST OF OUR LADY OF THE HOLY ROSARY.
