Twenty-eight pilgrims, Msgr. Michael Cariglio, and I just returned from a trip to Fatima – a trip of a life time. After flying overnight to Lisbon, we were met by our tour guide, Manuela, and then boarded a bus to Fatima. Along the way, we stopped and celebrated Mass in an old church. Above the altar is preserved a consecrated host which bled with the blood of Christ when broken.

May is often called “the Month of Mary.” Why? How did that custom originate?

Church historians tell us that during the Middle Ages, a tradition arose of a “Tricesimum,” or 30 days of devotion to Mary.  The centerpiece of the devotion was the recitation of the rosary but the Tricesimum was celebrated at different times of the year in different places.
