On August 25th our Seminary went on a pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of Aparecida, to deliver to Our Lady all our needs and thank her for her constant motherly protection. Before taking the bus on this trip we gathered in the chapel of the Seminary, where we prayed the itinerary clericorum and received a blessing from our Rector, Father Marco Antonio, with an image of Our Lady of Aparecida, the Patroness of our Country. When we arrived in there, we went to the Basilica to venerate the miraculous image of Our Lady of Aparecida and prayed the Rosary in front of the image. At 7 o’clock, we gathered in the chapel of the Apostles to attend the Holy Mass, a privileged place, which is located exactly behind the niche of the Sacred Image. We made our consecration there to the Queen and Patroness of Brazil. Nonetheless, we make this pilgrimage every year, in a thankful gesture to the one who is the Queen of Brazil and of Our Seminary.
