Our Lady of the Rosary, Fatima
THE COLLECTION: OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY, FATIMA
Ghirelli creativity is in the service of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary in Fatima, Portugal. We were asked by the Fatima Shrine to interpret its message in our unmistakable style. For this endeavor we have created a unique and fascinating Collection, properly evinced in its superior Italian-made quality.
Wonderful reproductions — small perfect works in size and detail — have been designed to evoke the emotion of finding oneself at the Cova da Iria. Each part is the result of intense creative work and is inspired by Our Lady of the Rosary and by the poor simple places chosen by Divine Providence in its merciful projects.
“God wants to establish in the world devotion to my immaculately conceived heart.” -- Our Lady of Fatima to Sister Lucia dos Santos
“We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete.” -- His Holiness, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
“Since the most Holy Virgin gave such power to the Holy Rosary, there is no material or spiritual, national or international problem that she cannot solve with the Holy Rosary and with our sacrifices.” -- Sister Lucia dos Santos of Fatima
“The message of Fatima means conversion and living in the grace of God.” -- Saint Pope John Paul II
“The Angel said: ‘Do not fear! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.’ And kneeling on the earth, he bent his forehead to the ground. Prompted by a supernatural movement, we imitated him and repeated the words which we heard him pronounce: ‘My God, I believe in Thee, I adore Thee, I hope in Thee and I love Thee. I ask pardon for all those who do not believe in Thee, do not adore Thee, do not hope in Thee and do not love Thee.’
“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, I adore You profoundly, and I offer You the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. And I draw upon the infinite merits of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and of the Immaculate Conception Heart of Mary, that You might convert poor sinners.” -- Apparition of the Angel of Peace
