Catholic New York: Fatima Devotees Venerate Relics at St. Vincent Ferrer
Fatima Devotees Venerate Relics at St. Vincent Ferrer
By Christie L. Chicoine
Madeleine Monier, 10, and her brother Charles, 8, venerated a relic of St. Jacinta Marto—the Church’s youngest, non-martyred saint—at St. Vincent Ferrer Church in Manhattan the night before the conclusion of the centennial marking the three shepherd children seers of the Blessed Mother at Fatima, Portugal.
“I felt like they were really there,” Madeleine told CNY, “and that Mary was there and they were embracing me.”
