"Fiat mihi verbum secundum tuum"
About Our Company
Our company name speaks for itself. FIAT is a Latin word meaning "Thy Will Be Done". These are the words of Our Blessed Mother, Mary, when the Angel Gabriel announced to Her (in Nazareth) that She was chosen by God to be the mother of Our Savior (Luke 1:38).

She answered "Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum" meaning "Be it done to me according to your word." This was Her "YES" - and may it remind us also of the "YES" of Jesus, at the Garden of Gethsemane, before He was arrested and later crucified. He prayed to God "...but not what I will but what YOU will" (Mark 14:36).

Through our company, we hope that you will also find the time to listen to Godís word, understand His will in your life and say YES for His glory and honor (1 Cor.10:31), just as Jesus and Mary did. Saying YES, even though you canít perceive what lies beyond, but fully relying on God and accepting His will in your life.
FIAT is a statement
of our total surrender to God.
Our Logo
The logo we have chosen is that of a lily and a clay pot and/or shield.

The lily is a primary attribute of the Virgin Mary (Her Immaculate Conception, Her virginal birth of Christ, Her energy) and has been closely associated as a representation of virgin martyrs and numerous saints, from St. Anthony, St. Joseph, St. Catherine, St. Clare and many more. This flower has been mentioned from the Old Testament all the way to the New Testament.

Through Christianity, the lily has become a sign of love, prayer, harmony, unity, purity of heart, chastity, holiness, peace, abundance, tranquility, Our Lord's resurrection, new life and heavenly bliss. Its white color indicates purity, perfect beauty, innocence, hope, virtue, self sacrifice and beginnings.

If you see it as a clay pot (Isaiah 64:7), it is to remind us that we are molded by God according to His plans for us. If you see it as an armor or shield (Proverbs 30:5), it reminds us that God is ALWAYS our shield, if only we would be more aware of His presence. We are called to be warriors of our faith and to quench all evil in order to save souls. Faith pleases God!

The blue color symbolizes heaven, unconditional love, sincerity, trust, opening the mind to share thoughts and ideas, and the gold color represents the glow of graces from heaven, fruitfulness, understanding, purpose, wisdom and spiritual love.
Prayer: May we all receive the grace of hearing Your call and be able to say "YES" to what You want us to do in accordance to the gifts You have given specifically to each of us. (As in Matthew 5:37,) Let our "yes" mean "yes", and our "no" mean "no". Amen.
What is our mission?
To provide a personalized service by "assisting" ANYONE (Catholic or not) who would like to visit the Catholic shrines around the world and to return with a change of heart, while respecting the needs and uniqueness of each individual according to their culture and special devotions. We do this in partnership with God, the Blessed Mother, all the saints, and you... the pilgrims.
What is our goal?
For you to "appreciate" your spiritual journey to the wonderful shrines which you will be visiting. We want you to be "enlightened" and your faith to be "strengthened" by understanding the messages that are of significance for each of the shrines which lead to the true meaning of being a Catholic.
Who are our clientele?
Our existing clients (who are a part of our FIAT FAMILY) are pilgrims who have trusted us with their very special "spiritual journey" in mind, and have travelled with us to different destinations every year. Our new clients are pilgrims who are now being invited by our current "messengers of faith".
What can we offer to you?
Our expertise lies in assisting you to travel whenever your schedule permits (called deviations) or if you would like to be a pilgrim and then a tourist for your extended vacation, YES, we'll gladly help you! And although our offices are located in the U.S.A., we can also assist your friends and relatives who live in Asia or anywhere in the world to join you on your pilgrimage.

We are the Specialist... because you are Special!

The religious market is our specialty. This includes the knowledge and understanding of the events that took place at the different shrines. Weíre an original Catholic tour company, not an imitation! We have walked and prayed through these holy sites which enables us to carefully plan our itineraries. Our packages are categorized by each individualís budget, time away from home, devotion, and most importantly, the travelling pace.

Anyone can sell a tour, but only a few can truly deliver. When comparing our tours and our prices, please ensure that you are comparing apples to apples.

The pilgrims are very special and thatís why we treat them like no other company has treated them before. How do you treat someone special? Very exclusively!. And thatís why our knowledge of the shrines designed into beautiful itineraries are exclusively reserved... just for our pilgrims.

Ask any FIAT pilgrim and youíll hear about the FIAT treatment!
"I can't afford it!"
Pray, pray very hard! If you truly believe that you are going on a pilgrimage, then your intention should start from within"...believing that a pilgrimage is a very special invitation. If you are meant to go, your prayers will be answered! As St. Teresa of Avila said, "You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him."
We care...
So if there is something else we left out, simply contact us, we'd love to hear from you. You may reach us by telephone, fax or email.
