From Julia, our new co-owner…

Dear Friends,
Thank you for the warm welcome! It is a great blessing to be a part of The Paschal Lamb family and a privilege to serve the Northern Virginia community and all who make their way into our store. Being at the store this past week has been exciting, getting to know and assist you as you prepare for Advent and the Christmas season. We are receiving new shipments daily to restock and keep up with great demand, which is wonderful to see despite the difficulties due to Covid-19. At this time of the year the store is filled with many beautiful and inspirational gifts for the holy season and we hope you find what you are looking for. Please let us know how we can be of special assistance.
May God bless you and your loved ones this holiday season!
In Christ,

God of power and mercy,

you destroy war and put down earthly pride.

Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears,

that we may all deserve to be called your sons

      and daughters.

Keep in your mercy those men and women

who have died in the cause of freedom

and bring them safely

into your kingdom of justice and peace.

We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord.

May 13: Our Lady of Fatima

our-lady-fatima-w-gold-frame-7x10-2222926 (2)Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima. Much has been documented on these approved apparitions that took place in Portugal in 1917. Pope Francis encourages us to nurture devotion to Our Lady of Fatima, especially in these difficult times. To read the Pope’s message, visit Vatican News .

“O God, who chose the Mother of your Son to be our Mother also, grant us that, persevering in penance and prayer for the salvation of the world, we may further more effectively each day the reign of Christ.”

From the collect of the Mass on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima.
