We received correspondence from another hostess of the Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima in her home. She lives in Altamonte Spring, Florida.
She described something beautiful that she observed. She was extremely impressed with the delicacy and carefulness with which the custodian handled Our Lady. He was extremely careful and took his time in order to treat Our Lady with all of the reverence that She is entitled to as Queen.
Our custodians are trained on every aspect of handling the statue of Our Lady. It begins with how to cover Her to protect Her from damage. How to secure Her in their vehicle. How to make sure there is an adequate place for Our Lady at the home they are visiting. They also announce to the host and guests that Our Lady will be carried into the home. Our Lady then is reverently and majestically carried into the home, still covered, and reverently placed upon Her place of honor.
Next, the custodian uncovers Our Lady. It is very common to hear gasps when Our Lady is uncovered, because of Her immense beauty and sacrality. The custodian then asks the hostess to first crown Our Lady and then to place a rosary in Her hands. When this happens, it is not uncommon for the hostess to cry, so great is the honor.
After the visit has been completed, the custodian then reverently covers Our Lady and carefully walks to his vehicle where the statue is secured for the next home.
The custodians will soon be resting for a couple of weeks at Christmas. However, our scheduling office is already scheduling home visits for January.
