During World War I, Pope Benedict XV made a plea with the Blessed Virgin for peace in the world. A week after imploring her help, Our Lady appeared to three children in the town of Fatima. She appeared to them six times and revealed to them three secrets: firstly of Hell, secondly of World Wars I and II, and thirdly of the persecution of Christians in the 20th century.
The statue is a wonderful reminder to pray the rosary and implore Mary's intercession. The statue measures 13'' tall and weights 1.4 kg.
