Our Lady of Fatima

The 13th of May is the feast day of Our Lady of Fatima.

On the 13th of May 1917, Our Lady appeared to three shepherd children while they were with their sheep in Fatima, Portugal. The three children were Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta. They described her as “brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal goblet filled with the most sparkling water and pierced by the burning rays of the sun.” She told them she was “Our Lady of the Rosary” and taught them to recite the rosary daily, to pray for the conversion of poor sinners, to make sacrifices as penance for the reparation for sin and in honour of Her Immaculate Heart. She prophesied the World Wars, and showed them a vision of Hell, as well as warning them about the spread of ideological errors originating from Russia. She asked that Russia be consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart by the Pope in union with the world’s bishops. She appeared in Fatima every 13th day of the month from May to October that year. In the final apparition, tens of thousands of people witnessed the “Miracle of the Sun” by both believers and unbelievers.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

August 02, 2018 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, with a motherly love I am calling you to open hearts to peace; to open hearts to my Son, so that in your hearts love for my Son may sing, because only out of that love peace comes in the soul. My children, I know that you have goodness, I know that you have love - a merciful love, but many of my children still have a closed heart. They think that they can do it without directing their thoughts towards the Heavenly Father who illuminates-towards my Son who is always with you anew in the Eucharist and who desires to listen to you. My children, why do you not speak to Him? The life of each of you is important and precious, because it is a gift from the Heavenly Father for eternity. Therefore, do not ever forget to keep on thanking Him: speak to Him. I know, my children, that what is to come afterwards is unknown to you, but when your hereafter comes you will receive all the answers. My motherly love desires that you be ready. My children, by your life keep putting good feelings in the hearts of the people whom you meet, feelings of peace, goodness, love and forgiveness. Through prayer, hearken to what My Son is saying and act accordingly. Anew, I am calling you to prayer for your shepherds, for those whom my Son has called. Remember that they need prayers and love. Thank you.
