The Icons of the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii
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.
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
