The Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima statue was designed as she appeared in 1929 to Sr. Lucia in Tuy, Spain. It was during this apparition that Our Lady asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart. The statue was blessed by Pope Francis on October 23, 2013, 10 days after his consecration of the world to Our Lady of Fatima on October 13.  It was formally introduced at the 2014 March for Life in Washington, D.C., and has been visiting parishes around the US since then.
