An icon for Mother Russia by Philip Coppens

The Virgin of Kazan

The Virgin of Kazan is one of the most revered icons Russia ever knew. Its disappearance at the time of the Russian Revolution was a catastrophe, but its resurgence and its link with Pope John Paul II and Fatima has added a most recent chapter to one of the world’s greatest icons.

Read the amazing story of Our Lady's Icon here.

Decree of Permanent Erection of WAF to Public International Association of the Faithful

Good news from WAF's Deacon Bob Ellis:


A blessed Christmas Season & Happy New Year to all!

I am elated to inform you that the “permanent” status of the WAF as a Public International Association of the Faithful has been confirmed by the Pontifical Council for the Laity. The decree is attached.

This status is neither a pat on the back nor an honor bestowed. It is, rather, the provision of a tremendous aid for our work and a clarion call to get busy.

Let’s do.

Call your Mother

In the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary,

Deacon Bob Ellis

Fatima Prayers of Reparation

Picture source

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those in the most need of Thy mercy.

My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee! I beg pardon for all those that do not believe, do not adore, do not trust and do not love Thee.

O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

O Jesus, it is for the love of Thee, in reparation for the offences committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and for the conversion of poor sinners.
