Message WAF International President on the Coronavirus Pandemic and First Saturdays devotion, March 23rd, 2020

Recent events

22 February – at Westminster Cathedral, London, SW1P 1QW.
A Holy Mass was celebrated to launch the 5-year preparation for the Centenary of the request for Five First Saturdays Devotion.

This event included a Procession of the Centennial Pilgrim Statue of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (different from the National Statue, since it is focused on the Immaculate Heart and thus also on the First Saturdays), followed by recitation of the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary, and then a talk on the centenary programme, on the themes for the next five years leading to the Centenary year 2025, with Holy Mass 2:45 pm.

You can read the homily given by Canon Jason Jones, the WAF England and Wales Spiritual director, here …

It focuses on the the simple but profound lessons of the role of the Virgin Mary in the Bible and the Second Vatican Council, as well as the New Evangelization and the Message of Fatima. It explains the new developments and latest authorized interpretations of the third secret of Fatima and its relationship with the New Evangelization. Also it looks at the approval of the Apostolate as an international public association of the faithful of pontifical right.
