“You must know that when you say ‘Hail Mary,’ Our Lady immediately greets you!” These words of Saint Bernadine of Siena, quoted in this year’s America Needs Fatima (ANF) 2008 calendar, are an exhortation to all Catholics to turn to Our Lady and recite the rosary as she requested at Fatima.
However, that is not all. This year’s calendar is filled with many other inspirational quotations from different Marian saints and Our Lady, herself.
Artfully laid out, each month has a picture of U.S. national parks, with a photograph of the miraculous International Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima superimposed on it.
ANF will distribute 142,000 of these calendars to its friends and supporters across the country. It will be the largest distribution of ANF calendars ever. Though it is a sign of growth, it is one of countless efforts this year to spread the Rosary and Fatima message across the nation.
