  • Description

    THOUSANDS OF ROMAN CATHOLICS IN SAIGON TOOK PART IN A PROCESSION OF SUNDAY TO HONOUR THE ARRIVAL FROM THE VATICAN OF A STATUE OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA.

    THE STATUE WAS A GIFT FROM THE INTERNATIONAL CATHOLIC CONGREGATION TO THE ROMAN CATHOLIC POPULATION OF SOUTH VIETNAM, AND ITS ARRIVAL BY AIR FROM THE VATICAN WAS MARKED BY FESTIVITY AND PAGEANTRY IN SAIGON.

    CHEERING CROWDS THRONGED SAIGON AIRPORT, WHERE THE STATUE WAS RECEIVED BY BISHOP ANGELO PALMAS AND OTHER ROMAN CATHOLIC OFFICIALS.

    THE STATUE WAS THEN TRANSFERRED TO A TRUCK, AND THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CROWDS TOOK IT IN PROCESSION THROUGH THE STREETS TO SAIGON BASILICA.

    SPECIAL SESSIONS OF PRAYER AND CELEBRATION ARE BEING HELD WHILE THE STATUE IS IN SAIGON FOR THE NEXT TWO DAYS.

    THEN IT WILL BE CIRCULATED TO OTHER ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCHES IN SOUTH VIETNAM FOR SIMILAR OBSERVANCES.
