Pilgrims to erect statue of Our Lady of Lujan on Falkland Islands

.- A statue of Our Lady of Lujan—the most popular Marian devotion in Argentina—will be erected on October 10 at the Darwin Cemetery on the Falkland Islands by a group of family members of fallen soldiers, accompanied by Bishop Juan Carlos Romanin of Rio Gallegos.
 
“This is the statue of Our Lady of Lujan, patroness of Argentina, the last piece of the monument to our fallen soldiers on the Falkland Islands,” the bishop said, adding that the Mother of God will watch over the eternal repose of our brothers “who fought the good fight for independence and national sovereignty,” as the inscription at the foot of the statue reads.
 
“This invitation is truly a gift of God for me, allowing me to travel to this place that is so beloved by our Church. Many of the former soldiers have venerated the Mother of God and have expressed their feelings, necessities, prayers and hopes to her.”
 
The statue will be erected at the monument in the Cemetery of Darwin to watch over “the Argentineans who lie in rest on the archipelago since 1982.”
