"Inside the Light: Understanding the Message of Fatima" with Sister Angela de Fatima Coelho
Sister Angela de Fatima Coelho talks about the themes in her new book "Inside the Light: Understanding the Message of Fatima." This meditation is from "Be Not Afraid: An Advent Morning of Recollection presented by the Luminaries of Holy Mary." The Basilica of Saint Mary hosted this event on December 12, 2020.
Sister Angela is an expert on the messages of Our Lady of Fatima
and has spoken to audiences worldwide. She is a native of Portugal
and a sister with the Aliança de Santa Maria, one of the fastest
growing religious orders in Portugal. Part of their charism is to
foster devotion to the Lord through the Immaculate Heart of Mary
and announce the Gospel and the messages of Our Lady of Fatima.
Founded in 1795, the Basilica of Saint Mary in Old Town Alexandria is the first Catholic parish established in Virginia. Pope Francis named the church a minor basilica on December 6, 2017 due to its important role in the growth of the Catholic Church in North America.
