My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You. Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly, and I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which He Himself is offended. And, through the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of poor sinners.

About Our Lady of Fatima

About Our Lady of Fatima

Our Lady of Fatima is the name given to the Blessed Virgin Mary when she appeared to six different time to three little shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal during the year 1917.

Lucia Santos and her two cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto were in the fields tending sheep when a flash of light appeared. In the light was a lady dressed in all white with a Rosary, it was the holy Virgin Mary. The holy Virgin Mary told the children she was from heaven and then asked the children to meet her at the same spot on the 13th of the next five months. She also told the children to pray the Rosary every day for world peace.

The next month, the Virgin Mary told the children that Jacinta and Francisco would soon to Heaven, but that Jacinta would stay on earth to encourage a devotion to the Immaculate Heart. These prophecies would soon become true. Both Jacinta and Francisco would die in the next few years do to the Spanish Flu epidemic in Europe

The Virgin Mary also gave the kids a prayer to ad to the Rosary that we know call the Fatima Prayer.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy.

The following month in July, five thousand people gather to see the next apparition. But only the three children could see the Virgin Mary. She gave the children a horrifying vision of hell, predicted that there would would be another great war(World War I had just ended, and Europe was still recovering from that tragedy.), and asked that Russia be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

She would also go on to give the children three secrets and asked the people to receive communion for the poor sinners on the first Saturday of each month for five straight months.

Word of these apparitions and prophecies spread throughout Portugal. The children were unable to get to the predetermined location in August because they had been jailed for not revealing the three secrets the Virgin Mary had given them. However, The Virgin Mary still appeared to them, this time on August 19th.

The next apparition on September 13th was witnessed by over 30,000 people. They ALL claim to have seen a shower of white petals.

The final apparition on October 13th had over 70,000 people attend. What they say is now known as The Miracle of the Sun. According to a local newspaper, “Before the astonished eyes of the crowd … as they stood bare-headed, eagerly searching the sky, the sun [violently] trembled, made sudden incredible movements outside all cosmic laws — the sun ‘danced’ according to the typical expression of the people [who were there].”

These miracles were seen and confirmed by Catholics and non-Catholics, and were later authenticated by the Vatican in 1930. The evidence for a miracle was overwhelming, and since then the Fatima site has been a source of healings and miracles. Every year around four million pilgrims visit the Basilica at Fatima.

At the final apparition, along with the Virgin Mary making the sun dance. The three little shepherd children saw Our Lady and St. Joseph with the child Jesus Christ bless the world. Jesus Christ blessed the crowd and the Mary depicted as Out Lady of Sorrows and Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Lucia continued to receive visions throughout her life, and in 1927 revealed the first two secrets. The first secret was a vision of Hell. And sadly, it was a Hell that was full of poor sinners. The second secret was about the ending of World War I and how World War II was going to begin. Along with how Russia needed to be consecrated for the Immaculate Heart of Mary. the tragedy of course is that tens of millions died because of the events surrounding World War II and in Russia because of the Soviet Union. The twentieth century was the bloodiest in human history, and much of that was foretold at Fatima.

In 1989, Lucia announced the acceptance of the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by Pope John Paul II. this coincided with the year the Berlin Wall fell.

In the year 2000, Pope John Paul II revealed the third secret saying it was a prediction of someone trying to assassinate him. Lucia passed away in 2005 exactly how the Virgin Mary predicted she would.

The legacy of the Miracles of Our Lady of Fatima amazed so many people that it’s one of the best examples we have of the Virgin Mary appearing. To this day many people pray the holy rosary everyday to seek forgiveness and to bring peace to the world.
