100th Anniversary of Fatima Miracle
Fatima, Portugal - Today is the 100th anniversary of the Fatima Miracle of the sun. This event was experiences by 70,000 people and was a sign from Our Lady of the Rosary which culminated 7 months of heavenly visitations. Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth visited Fatima to encourage all her children to pray and be part of divine destiny by prayerfully living out their baptismal promises and actively participate in the conversion of the whole world.
Our Lady of the Rosary came to share her love and promises to souls who live a prayerful life in God. Following are some of the prayers taught to the shepherd children Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco of Fatima.
THE EUCHARISTIC PRAYER
During the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima, the children found themselves "moved by an interior impulse," as Lucia later explained, to say the following prayer together:
"Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament."
THE SACRIFICE PRAYER
The Blessed Mother taught the children to offer all their personal sacrifices to God by praying,
"Oh my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
THE ROSARY DECADE PRAYER
The Blessed Mother stressed the critical importance of praying the rosary daily for the conversion of sinners and for peace in the world. She asked that the following prayer be recited at the end of each rosary decade:
"Oh My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy."
The Angel of Portugal visited the children and taught them to believe, love, and adore God and to intercede for others.
"My God we believe, we adore, we hope and love you. We beg pardon for all those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you. Amen"
Let us continue to share in this divine legacy of Fatima to all God's children by praying the rosary everyday, asking for the conversion of all souls and making God the center of our lives. At Fatima we received the grace of our Heavenly Mother's visitation. Invite her into your hearts each day and continue to receive the graces as her loving children for all families, all peoples and all nations of the world.
Our Lady of the Rosary we love you.
Our Lady of the Rosary pray for us.
Our Lady of Fatima be our guide and consolation.
Our Lady of world peace be with us always. Amen
