Fifth Badge: Our Lady of Fátima

Dear Pilgrim,

As pilgrims made their way through the land, they often recorded their progress and memorialized their experience by collecting badges or markers. These would be presented at the final destination as evidence of their journey for a final token or certificate of completion. Along our Pilgrimage to Pentecost, we will recognize our progress with many of the christian pilgrim trails walked through history and today.

May 13 is the anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady to three shepherd children in the small village of Fatima in Portugal in 1917. In the midst of a world war and devastation, people were inspired by such a visit of hope. The Basilica in Portugal and surrounding areas last year attracted over 70,000 pilgrims. In the week ahead, consider your prayers for healing.

We hope you find the scripture video recording as nourishing as it is intended. We also offer this prayer for you to reflect upon as you navigate this day of your journey.
