The people of Karak Governorate welcomed on Sunday, June 2 the statue of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary of Fátima at the Latin Patriarchate School’s square in Al-Wasiyeh.

The day included praying the rosary and celebrating Holy Mass which was presided by Fr. Joseph Rizeq. The Mass was concelebrated by priests form southern Jordan and Fr. Vítor Coutinho, vice-rector of Our Lady of Fatima grotto in Portugal.

In his homily, Fr. Rizeq stressed the need to honor Virgin Mary quoting references from the Holy Bible. He added that in Her apparitions in Fatima, Virgin Mary called for praying the rosary on daily bases, noting that in Her last apparition She introduced Herself as the Lady of the Rosary and urged the shepherds to continue to pray the rosary and repent in order to eliminate evil from the world.

He added that we love Virgin Mary because She is the impeccable image of Lord Jesus Christ. He continued, “Virgin Mary is not an image or a statue, but a model to be emulated by every true believers and a mother to very human being.”

At the end of the Mass, Fr. Vítor Coutinho explained the message expressed by Our Lady of Fatima to humanity over a century ago. Later, a festive tour followed with the statue of Our lady of Fatima during which Marian hymns were sung.

On the last day of the visit of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima to the Land of Baptism, a festive Mass was celebrated at Our Lady of Nazareth Catholic Church in Sweifieh, western Amman in the presence of hundreds of parishioners from various parts of the capital. Then, Fr. Jihad Shwaihat celebrated holy Mass which was concelebrated by Fr. Vítor Coutinho, Director of the Catholic Center for Studies and Media in Jordan Fr. Dr. Rif’at Bader, Fr. Simon Hijazin, deacon Hayel Alamat, and a number of acolytes.

Furthermore, on Sunday, June 2, with the arrival of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima at St. Joseph School, which is affiliated with the Franciscan Sisters off the 8th circle, Jabal Amman, Fr. Vítor Coutinho, vice-rector of Our Lady of Fatima grotto in Portugal, blessed the rosaries. This was followed by praying the rosary and Marian hymns by the Fountain of Love Choir in the presence of Fr. Rashid Mistrih.
