Thank you!

Located in west central Portugal, in the region of Leiria and approximately 110 kilometers north of Lisbon, the small town of Fatima is one of the most visited Marian shrines in the world today. But unlike many of Europe's great Marian pilgrimage sites, the sanctity of Fatima dates not from the Middle Ages but only from early in the 20th century. Fatima was then a small rural village in a rocky region whose main product was olive oil. There are no historical or legendary accounts of the village or surrounding area having any religious importance in earlier times. In the years 1916 and 1917 a series of apparitions were seen by three young children that were to profoundly alter both their own lives and the atmosphere of the peasant village.

Portugal Fátima5

  1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-1994565-fatima5/
  2. 2. The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima (also known as the Fátima Shrine, the Sanctuary of Fátima or Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary) is a Roman Catholic Marian basilica in Fátima, Portugal.
  3. 3. Located in west central Portugal, in the region of Leiria and approximately 110 kilometers north of Lisbon, the small town of Fatima is one of the most visited Marian shrines in the world today. But unlike many of Europe's great Marian pilgrimage sites, the sanctity of Fatima dates not from the Middle Ages but only from early in the 20th century. Its construction began in 1928 and it was consecrated in October 1953.
  4. 4. The impressive neoclassical Basilica, flanked by porticos for the 14 Stations of the Cross is topped with a central tower 65 metres (213 ft)
  5. 5. The fame of this place is the result of the Apparitions of Our Lady of the Rosary to three shepherd children Lúcia and her cousins, Francisco and Jacinta that, between May and October of 1917, witnessed successive apparitions. The last one, on October 13th, was confirmed by a miracle witnessed by 70,000 people "on the day the sun danced". The very heart of the Sanctuary is the Chapel of Apparitions. It was the first edifice constructed in the Cova da Iria, at the place of Our Lady's Apparitions. The exact spot is marked by a marble pillar on which the Statue of Our Lady is placed. Here converge the four million pilgrims who visit the Sanctuary each year

  7. 7. The Chapel of Apparitions
  8. 8. The building, which measures 70.5 meters long and 37 meters wide, was built entirely with stone from the region (instead of Moimento) and the altars of marble from Estremoz, Pero Pinheiro and Fatima. It has capacity to accommodate about 650 people seated.
  9. 9. The bell tower, erected in the center of an architectural whole, is 65 meters tall and is topped by a bronze crown of 7,000 pounds, built in foundry Bolhão, Porto, topped by a cross that lit up at night, overlooking the long distance.
  10. 10. The statue of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the niche of the tower is 4.73 meters and weighs 14 tons. The large statue was sculpted by American priest Thomas McGlynn, O.P. Father McGlynn spent considerable time with the visionary Sister Lúcia as she described for him in detail how Mary looked during her appearances to the children. The statue was presented as a gift from the Catholic people of the United States to the Sanctuary of Fátima in 1958
  11. 11. John Paul II said it was Our Lady of Fatima who helped him survive an assassination attempt on Saint-Peter's square in May 1981. Fatima's crown contains one of the bullets that struck John Paul.
  12. 12. At the entrance of the Basilica, above the main door, there is a mosaic that represents the coronation of Our Lady by the Most Holy Trinity. It was made at the shops of the Vatican and blessed right there by then Secretary of State His Eminence Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli, who was to become Pope Pius XII.
  13. 13. The high altar painting depicts the Message of Our Lady to the little shepherds, prepared by the Angel of Portugal. Included in the painting are figures of the local bishop as well as Pope Pius XII (who consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1942), Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI.
  14. 14. Detail of stained glass inside Our Lady Star of the Sea Church, Lake Hopatcong, NJ, USA
  15. 15. The precious crown, worn by the statue only on days of great pilgrimages, was donated by the women of Portugal on October 13, 1942. It is made of gold, weighs 1,200 grams and has 313 pearls and 2679 precious stones. It is unique and of great artistic and monetary value. It was made, without charge, by the Joalharia (Jewelry shop) Leitão & Irmão, of Lisbon, and 12 artists worked on it for three months. In 1989, the bullet extracted from the body of Holy Father John Paul II, after the attempt on his life in Rome, on May 13, 1981, and by him donated to the Shrine, on March 25, 1984, was enchased in it.
  16. 16. The statue is the work of Sculptor José Ferreira Thedim, a maker of statues of Saints. It is made of cedar wood from Brazil and it is 1.04 meters high. It was restored by its author in 1951 and retouched several times after that.
  17. 17. The 15 altars are dedicated to the 15 mysteries of the Rosary. Golden basrelief of Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary representing one of the fifteen mysteries of the rosary, similar to the stations of the cross
  18. 18. Jesus in the garden Young Jesus among the doctors
  19. 19. The stained-glass windows of the side chapels, representing invocations of the Litany of Our Lady, and those of the galleries in the upper part of the nave and the transept, are by João de Sousa Araújo.

  27. 27. Jesus is taken down from the cross (Deposition or Lamentation) Jesus in the arms of his Mother Jesus is laid in the tomb
  28. 28. The object of the Stations is to help the faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage of prayer, through meditating upon the chief scenes of Christ's sufferings and death. It has become one of the most popular devotions for Roman Catholics, and is often performed in a spirit of reparation for the sufferings and insults that Jesus endured during His Passion. The Resurrection of Jesus is included as a fifteenth station
  29. 29. The carillon consists of 62 bells, cast and tempered at Fatima by José Gonçalves Coutinho, Braga. The largest bell weighs 3,000 pounds and the clapper 90. The clock is the work of Benedict Rodriguez, Braga.
