According to Father Robert Bailey, Spiritual Director for the Rhode Island Division of the World Apostolate of Fatima,
“The United Nations International Pilgrim Statue of Fatima has been an Ambassador of Peace. This is especially true in our times of war and terrorism. However, we have also been focusing on the role of International Statue in serving as an “Ambassador of Vocations” inspiring prayer and need to encourage and support vocations within the Universal Church.”
As a pilgrim statue, this ministry promotes Our Lady’s intercession through prayer. This representative pilgrim statue provides an inspiration to both our young and old equally to answer God’s call.
