The Italian Air Force Flies a Statue of the Virgin Mary over Italy to Combat the Coronavirus

March 17, 2020

A statue of the Virgin Mary is being flown over the cities of Italy in order to combat the coronovirus. A priest is seen holding up the Holy Eucharist while being flown in a military plane by the Italian Air Force. This is how Rome is trying to protect their homeland.

In view of the Coronavirus Pandemic a person or a people can't afford to not get it right. Lives are on the line worldwide. Is there any truth to this piece? If so, is it practical, effective or biblical? How should one pray: directly to God, in the name of Jesus or via a statue of the Virgin Mary (either on land or in the air)? Are statues safe or idols? Is this the solution to the Coronavirus Pandemic? CM

    thus, at any time a plane of the Italian Air Force takes to the air, the virgin of Loreto is flying over Italy. So what?

    Wolfgang,

    To your "so what" tell me, is it effective, meaningful and practical? Is there power in the name of Mary? Does one pray to Mary or to the Statue of Mary? If it's the latter, what happen if it breaks? Regardless, would this be consider idol worship in some religious circles?

    Coronavirus or not, is this misleading or giving people false hope of healing and protection? CM
