International Centennial Pilgrim Statues of Our Lady of Fatima 紀念花地瑪聖母顯現一百週年國際朝聖聖像


由於2017年是聖母在花地瑪顯現的一百週年,所以今年亦相對地稱為禧年。教宗方濟各於2017111日,祝聖了六個花地瑪聖母無玷聖心像作為『紀念花地瑪聖母顯現一百週年國際朝聖聖像。聖像的使命是去到世界各地再次提倡花地瑪聖母在1917年所呼籲祈禱和賠補的訊息,這些訊息現在已漸被遺忘。

這六個聖母像是會分別去到不同的陸洲去執行以上使命,而香港有幸能被選為聖母像訪問的第一站。

With 2017 having been declared as a Jubilee Year because of the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance in Fatima, and believing more than ever in the pressing call today to “pray and do penance”, on January 11, 2017, six statues of the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima were blessed by Pope Francis to be the “International Centennial Pilgrim Statues of Our Lady of Fatima”. Their mission is to promote the message of "Prayer and Reparation (Penance)" throughout the world, which somehow has been forgotten since Our Blessed Mother appealed for this in Fatima in 1917.

The six statues are to each travel to a different continent for its mission. In Asia, Hong Kong has been chosen as the first stop for the visit of the Blessed Mother.
