SAN DIEGO — The San Diego-based apostolate Catholic Action for Faith and Family commemorated the feast of Our Lady of Fatima on May 13, with its fourth annual Marian Holy Hour and May Crowning.

Auxiliary Bishop Ramón Bejarano presided over the livestreamed celebration, which was held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish in Rancho Peñasquitos.

The event began with a procession into the church led by four men, who carried a statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

“We have come here to crown the Virgin Mother of God and listen to the Word of God in faith,” the bishop told those in attendance. “This ceremony has a lesson to teach us about the Gospel, that the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven are those who are foremost in serving and in love.”

Bishop Bejarano blessed a crown of flowers with holy water, and a young girl from the parish placed it on the head of the Our Lady of Fatima statue. The bishop incensed the statue and led the faithful in reciting the glorious mysteries of the rosary and the Litany of Loreto.

Present also during the ceremony was a reliquary containing first-class relics of Sts. Jacinta and Francisco Marto, two of the three children to whom Our Lady appeared at Fatima.
