Lady of Fatima, Lady of Light! Shine on our pathway....

"Hi!
 
I was taught by the Sisters of Mercy who originally were an Irish order.  The school was St. Mary's in Norwich, CT, which has been closed for a long time.  I'm still in touch with my eighth grade teacher from 1963, so maybe I can ask her if she has any ideas how to get a copy of it. They have a retirement home for the nuns in West Hartford.  Maybe someone there has an old hymnal.
 
It goes" Lady of Fatima, Lady of light, shine on our pathways through earths darksome plight!
Shield us in battle, rancor bid cease; Lady of Fatima grant us world peace, Lady of Fatima grant us world peace!"
 
It would be a great song for today!  My parish just had a visit with one of the 4 international statues of Our Lady of Fatima, and it would have been nice to be able to have everyone sing that beautiful hymn.  Our Ladies Guild is also devoted to Our Lady of Fatima; I want to teach them the song."
