District Superior's Letter: May-Jun 2015
We are happy to see Our Lady of Fatima’s Pilgrim Statue coming to your chapel in the following months or years! It will indeed take almost three years to visit all our churches and missions.
We are happy to see Our Lady of Fatima’s Pilgrim Statue coming to your chapel in the following months or years! It will indeed take almost three years to visit all our churches and missions. I am glad to have been able to launch the project conceived by Fr. Rostand before the end of his term. After him,
I entrust all our apostolates, in particular your families, your souls, and our schools to Our Blessed Mother, whom you will receive as a pilgrim in your chapels. She is the most powerful source of fidelity; she is the faithful Virgin!” (Letter to Friends and Benefactors, July-August 2014)
This Fatima Apostolate, in the spirit of a crusade, should change our lives, helping us to spend every moment in accord with our baptismal vows. Our Lady is the one who can make it happen, because she is the Mother that God chose for His beloved Son and for us.
Chapels and schools, parish groups and guilds, recollections and conferences all aim to bring our souls closer to God and it is through Our Lady’s assistance that we are able to approach the Most High. The whole work of the Society falls under the providence of Our Blessed Mother. Let us remind that the Society of St. Pius X is also named, by the will of our Founder, the Apostles of Jesus and Mary!
A visit from the Pilgrim Statue is an opportunity to increase our devotion to Our Lady, to make or renew our consecration to her Immaculate Heart, and to improve our connection to the propitiatory end of the Sacrifice of the Mass. This visit can change lives and it will!
We entrust especially to her protection our families and religious vocations. We lament having too few workers joining us in the Master’s vineyard this year. According to the recommendations of Jesus, we must beg for more workers to be sent. May Our Lady present our requests to the Holy Trinity: “grant us many holy priests and religious vocations!”
With my blessings,
In the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Fr. Jurgen Wegner
