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.

The Raising of Lazarus

So they took away the stone. And Jesus raised his eyes and said, “Father,* I thank you for hearing me.  I know that you always hear me; but because of the crowd here I have said this, that they may believe that you sent me.” And when he had said this, he cried out in a loud voice,* “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, tied hand and foot with burial bands, and his face was wrapped in a cloth. So Jesus said to them, “Untie him and let him go.”   John 11 41:44

Palm Sunday

Christ became obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.  Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name.  Phil 2: 8 – 9
