So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Our Lady of Fatima, Victoria: statue raising.

A beautiful event this weekend includes the unveiling of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima designed and fabricated by a local sculptor.

The base (below ground) was prepared weeks in advance. The assembly crew, which included the artist, Armando Barbon (Studio 37), put together the pedestal, pillar, capital and statue with meticulous care over six hours.

The weather cooperated, but as you can see from the photos, very dark clouds threatened at the perimeter of the area. A light rain yielded to sunny skies as the assembly was completed. After assembly, the statue was draped for the official unveiling.

Stay tuned for updates.
