Everything I do is intended to please Mary because I really am her instrument.

 

Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.

Mt 11:28

Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’

Mt 25:40

PILGRIM MTA FOR PRISON

How do I get involved?

The Blessed Mother travels in the form of a pilgrim shrine to whoever welcomes her, no matter where they are. If you minister to people in prisons you can obtain a Pilgrim MTA for this purpose.

The visit of the MTA Image brings light and warmth to those in need, being a source of hope that springs from the Mother’s heart, leading to the graces that flow from the Shrine.

The Servant of God John Luiz Pozzobon not only visited families but also took the Mother of God to hospitals, schools, and prisons, seeing her as a point of support to elevate his prayer to God and transform the social reality of many people.

He emphasized uniform participation and the importance of human dignity. As missionary of Hope, his legacy includes charity as a core function of the Church, alongside proclaiming the Gospel and ministering the Sacraments.
