The 44th Anniversary honoring Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers on Saturday, June 21, and Sunday, June 22, was a resounding success. About 500 pilgrims, many first-timers, attended the Vigil and 270 attended the Anniversary Banquet at the LaGuardia Marriott.
       Devotees from the four corners of the world assembled, including from Africa, Asia, Europe,  Central and South America, Canada and, of course, the United States of America.
       It was impressive and uplifting to see so many praying the Holy Rosary for world peace and cleansing themselves in the Sacrament of Penance.
       World-famous Fatima expert, Fr. Nicholas Gruner, inspired the multitudes at the Banquet with his vast knowledge of this critical apparition, which is even more relevent and urgent now than when it occurred 100 years ago.
       What a joy and tremendous consolation it must have been for Our Blessed Mother to be among Her own who made such  great sacrifices to come in pilgrimage to honor Her under the glorious title of Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers.
