Heavenly Bliss
Jesus taught us how to pray, now known as the "Our Father" prayer which states "Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven..." The scriptural expression "heaven and earth" means all that exists, creation in its entirety. Heaven is the state of fulfillment of our souls as we rest in God's presence for eternity; bliss is great happiness which is attainable. St. John Chrysostom wrote that "One purpose for which the Blessed Virgin was created Mother of God is that She may obtain the salvation of many who, on account of weakness and wickedness, could not be saved according to the rigor of divine justice, but might be so with the help of this merciful mother's powerful intercession." In Fatima, She appeared 6 times and left us this message: "Say the Rosary every day to earn peace for the world and the end of war."
Fatima and Paris
6 Days - Portugal and France
Itinerary
Day 1: Depart the USA on your flight to Lisbon, Portugal. Meals will be served on overnight flight.
Day 2: "Boa Vinda!" That's "Welcome!" in Portuguese. After arriving in Lisbon, our Tour Director welcomes us with a beautiful smile and escorts us through the mountainous central region of the Serra de Aire toward Fatima, which was once a remote village of the Moors. Dinner and overnight in Fatima.
Day 3: After breakfast, we will enjoy a walking tour of Fatima. As we witness the many holy sights here, let us contemplate the words of the Angel of Peace, appearing to the three "little shepherds" near the well behind Lucia’s house and asking them to "Pray, Pray very much! The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have designs of mercy on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High. Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners." Dinner and overnight in Fatima.
Day 4: Today marks the Anniversary of the Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima. Let us be thankful and celebrate this wonderful invitation from Our Blessed Mother of being able to experience what occurred here many years ago. In May, we honor the Anniversary of Her first apparition to the children. In October, we honor the Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun, when She promised Lucia that She would perform a miracle so that all may believe. It was on October 13th that She requested that a chapel be built affirming Her to be the Lady of the Rosary. We will celebrate Mass at the Chapel of the Apparitions (Capelinha), located at the Cova da Iria, pray the Rosary, and witness the Blessing of the Sick. This is the spot where a little holmoak grew on which Our Lady appeared 5 times from May to October, 1917 to the three little shepherds: 8 yrs. old Francisco Marto, 6 yrs. old Jacinta Marto and 9 yrs. old Lucia dos Santos. After dinner, we will participate in the Candlelight Procession where pilgrims from around the world unite to pray to Our Lady of the Rosary. Dinner and overnight in Fatima.
Day 5: Early morning departure bound for Paris. Upon arrival, we will be met by our Tour Director who will escort us to our hotel. Enroute, enjoy a panoramic city tour of Paris which includes the Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees with the Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral, culminating with Mass at the Miraculous Medal Chapel, where the incorrupt body of St. Catherine Labouré is kept. It was in 1830 that Our Blessed Mother had appeared to her giving her the mission of having a medal struck and distributed, later known as the Miraculous Medal. In 1840, Our Blessed Mother appeared again, this time to Justine Bisqueyburu with the gift of the Green Scapular. Dinner and overnight in Paris.
Day 6: We say farewell to France as we board our return flight to the USA, arriving later that day.
