You may be wondering about the title "Fatima statue, storm, rainbow and Saint Louis de Montfort..."
Well, they reflect these pictures that were taken on the afternoon of April 28, (I am not sure if it was 2002 or 2003) at the headquarters of TFP-ANF.
On that day, we were honored to have the the Miraculous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima with us.
The statue was supposed to leave us at 6PM to visit the Saint Louis de Montfort Academy in Herndon, PA, about two hours away.
But a severe storm watch was in effect at that exactly that time and dark clouds were gathering on the horizon and a tornado was heading straight for our place. So we were afraid to take the statue out in the bad weather. It was also very cold.
A strong gust of wind blew the storm to our west and the sky suddenly cleared and a beautiful double rainbow appeared to our northeast. It was still raining, but we had the happy idea to take photos of Our Lady's statue with the rainbow in the background, underneath the protection of umbrellas.
Only cell phones were available at that moment so we only got poor quality photos of the event.
It was a beautiful succession of events and very consoling too. It was as if Our Lady wanted to teach us a lesson of confidence in her power to control the events. And exactly on the feast day of her special son, Saint Louis de Montfort.
I thought you'd like to see the pictures and read the story.
