Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, the International Pilgrimage Fatima Statue is visiting all 50 U.S. states. Today, the statue was on display at Sacred Heart Cathedral.
The world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue (IPVS) of Fatima is one of two “twin” statues sculpted in 1947 by famous sculptor José Thedim. The image reflects the precise instructions of Sister Lucia.
The statue has toured the world for the past 70 years with the message, “Do not be afraid. I am from Heaven.”
