About the Image

The National Pilgrim Image

The National Pilgrim Image (NPI) is one of the original statues blessed by Pope Paul VI and was later brought to the Philippines by the late Jaime Cardinal Sin and was crowned as the National Pilgrim Image during the launching of the National Marian Year on December 8, 1984. It was permanently handed to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in 1999 and was the main Fatima image that became the forefront of the EDSA People Power Revolution in 1986 where Our Lady, through the statue, showed her maternal protection to our people. The image of Our Lady of Fatima is considered as the Queen of Peace (NSOLF Website).
