(Press Release) — In celebration of the 101st anniversary of  Our Lady of Fatima and the “ Miracle  of the sun in Fatima, on Oct. 13,1917,   Dr. Celia Lamkin,  Rosary Rally captain for the CNMI,  would like to invite everyone to join the 2018 Public Square Rosary Rally that will be held on Saturday, October 13 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 the Oleai Pavilion, Beach Road, San Jose, Saipan.

 The actual rosary rally starts at 12 noon. This is important as it is near the time that the miracle of the sun took place in Fatima in 1917. “We wish to honor Our Lady and Our Lord within this time frame,” Dr. Lamkin said.

On Oct. 13, 1917, Our Lady performed a miracle witnessed by 70,000 people, including atheists, communists and anti-Catholics. Some of them were converted.

The 2018 Public Square Rosary Rallies will remind the person on the street that conversion is possible.

“This is the eight year that I will be a Rosary Rally captain since 2011,” Dr. Lamkin said. “The first Public Square Rosary Rally was held in front of the Mount Carmel Cathedral in Susupe, followed by the rosary rally which I organized at the Garapan Fishing Base in October 2012 , and the Rosary Rallies  at the Filcom Pavilion and  Minachom Atdao Pavilion thereafter,” said Dr. Lamkin. “Our dear Lord Jesus Christ and Our Blessed Mother have shown and made miracles on me and my family, hence, I am still alive after five  heart attacks.”

She added, “In October 2013, I offered the Rosary rally for the complete healing of my sibling who was diagnosed to have a Stage 3A colon cancer  which definitely required  a chemotherapy. I told my sibling to have faith in God because God is the best  physician and greatest healer. However, the chemotherapy has been postponed due to his abnormal laboratory results.  Four months after the operation of my sibling, the oncologist requested to repeat all the laboratories for cancer cells and CT scan and they all turned to  be normal even without any chemotherapy. And until now, my sibling is still alive. With the succeeding public Rosary Rallies, we prayed for the petitions of many people and they were answered prayers. Hence, I believe in the miracles of God.”

“I believe that I still have a mission on this earth, “ Dr. Lamkin said. “Let’s pray the Rosary for Peace in the World, in reparation for the countless sins which are committed daily, to give us discernment and strength to withstand trials we face, among others.”

The prayer program of the Rosary Rally includes the following: Intentions for the 2018 Public Square Rosary Rallies, Immaculate Mary, Angelus, Holy Rosary followed by Fatima prayers to be prayed after each decade, Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Prayer of Total Consecration, Divine Praises, O Sanctissima.

“We must pray to God for help. He will hear us if we pray through the intercession of His Blessed Mother,” Dr. Lamkin said.
