Over at Catholic Exchange there is a seriesofarticles written by Dorothea and Wolfgang Koch about Fátima. They are focusing upon the artwork of the Dominican Friar Fr. Thomas McGlynn who sculpted the statue of Our Lady of Fátima that adorns the facade of the original Basilica in Fátima.
There is, however, a fact of Fr. McGlynn’s life that is not very well known.* When the Carmelites of Coimbra, Portugal published their biography of Sr. Lúcia, they revealed to the world a previously hidden fact.
Hello Everyone! I hope that the first few weeks of the new year have gone by well for you!
On May 13, 2019, I gave a talk in Ishpeming, MI on Marian Consecration and Fatima. I have made the talk available on my YouTube channel.
There was a group of people at the parishes in Ishpeming who were preparing for consecration to Mary. I was contacted either in February or March by a member of this group and was asked to give a talk about Marian consecration in relation to Fatima. I had not given such a talk before, but thankfully, I had some thoughts in my head and was able to organize them along with other material.
You’ll find the result of my preparations in this talk.
I also made a PowerPoint presentation to go along with the talk. My remarks were written out in advance, though there were numerous times that I went “off script” with the audience.
For the present video, I took digital stills of the PowerPoint and arranged them accordingly to the audio file.
