Fatima tours San Pedro

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

Yesterday Our Lady Fatima made her tour of San Pedro. The statue arrived on the 12:30 Maya flight coming from El Salvador, and was taken by in a procession to the Catholic Church for for rosary and crowning. (The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, appeared six times to three shepherd children near the town of Fatima, Portugal between May 13th and October 13th 1917.)

There was a big turn out for the evening procession, I heard the music and went out on our balcony to see Fatima make her way past the tacoshack. When something like this happens I usually end up popping over to front street to catch a few more pictures of the event as it heads back through town.
