A Fatima Sanctuary for St. Petersburg

A Byzantine Rite sanctuary dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima is due to be built in St. Petersburg, according to the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X (FSSPX).

Father Alejandro Burgos, a Spanish priest exercising his apostolate in St. Petersburg is quoted as saying that “the Orthodox confessions are not opposed to this project. Many Russians have great devotion to Our Lady of Fatima, who interceded for the conversion of Russia during the communist persecution.”

Some years ago a founding trustee of The Saint George Educational Trust, due to his role in the European Parliament, was invited to speak as a guest to Deputies of the Russian State Duma. He was able to briefly explain something about the appearances of the Mother of God at Fatima in 1917 and of the eventual resurgence and reuniting of Christendom with Russia being Heaven’s chosen instrument.
