On Mary’s Behalf
Blessed Luigi Novarese consecrated himself and all of his work to the Marian spirituality of Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady of Fatima.
He commented: “The Blessed Virgin indicates the path giving meaning to pain and suffering at Lourdes and Fatima. Our Apostolate applies all of Her words translating them into reality. We then go a step further placing the sick in a special role: they are not to be pitied, but to be seen as active, responsible persons in the evangelization and salvation of souls. They unite their lives with that of Christ’s Passion and Resurrection.”
“Here is the Apostolate’s role: to accept suffering transforming it into a sacrifice offered to the Father in Christ for the salvation of one’s self and of others. Members pray following Our Lady’s requests at Lourdes and Fatima and thus participate in Jesus’ plan for salvation.”
