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.

In  February we celebrate the Presentation of the Lord.  

When the days were completed for their purification
according to the law of Moses,
Mary and Joseph took Jesus up to Jerusalem
to present him to the Lord,
just as it is written in the law of the Lord,
Every male that opens the womb shall be consecrated to the Lord,
and to offer the sacrifice of
a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons,
in accordance with the dictate in the law of the Lord.  LK 2: 22-24
