From Catholic News Agency:
In 2020, the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal has lost scores of pilgrims and, with them, large amounts of revenue, amid coronavirus travel restrictions which have kept foreigners away.
Spokeswoman Carmo Rodeia told CNA Nov. 18 that the low number of pilgrims has had “a profound impact on donations” to the shrine, with a drop of 47%. In October, one of the Marian shrine’s two busiest months of the year, it was able to welcome 6,000 people with mask-wearing and enforced distancing in its central square. But it was still a much lower attendance than usual and included very few foreigners, Rodeia said.
Pray always for purity and love
