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 September we celebrate The Birth of Mary and The Exaltation of the Cross.

The Birth of Mary

She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:

Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son,
and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means “God is with us.”  Matthew 1: 18 – 23

***

The Exaltation of the Cross

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.  John 3: 16 – 17
