Our Lady of Fatima statue trapped in Samar

MANILA, Philippines - The international pilgrim statue of Our Lady of Fatima has been trapped in Eastern Samar, one of the areas battered by Super Typhoon Yolanda.

The image reportedly arrived in Dolores town last Thursday, where it was scheduled to stay overnight, according to CBCPNews, the official news service provider of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines.

CBCPNews said the icon was supposed to be transferred to Borongan last Friday but there was no confirmation if it arrived safely because of poor communication.

The icon should have been brought yesterday to the Archdiocese of Palo, Leyte which was also lashed by Yolanda.

The image, which came from Fatima, Portugal, on Sept. 16 was set to be brought to 41 archdioceses and dioceses all over the country until Dec. 18.
