The Icons of the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii 

 Featured Icons

The liturgical year of the Church is made up of six seasons.  They are Advent, Christmas, Lent, Sacred Paschal Triduum, Easter and Ordinary Time.  The seasons, of course, include Sundays, Holy Days, and Feast Days.  As the liturgical year progresses, The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii will present images from the Shrine’s Icons.  We are hopeful that these images will bring you closer to God as your reflect on them and incorporate them into your prayers to God.

We also ask that you remember the individuals, families, or groups who so generously became a Godparent of the icon.  If there is a dedication of the icon by the Godparent, we kindly request that you keep those mentioned in the dedication in your prayers.  Thank you.

PENTECOST SUNDAY

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”

And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”  John 20:19-23

Ascension Sunday

The eleven disciples went to Galilee,
to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them.
When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted.
Then Jesus approached and said to them,
“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” MT 28: 16 – 20
