The Power of Prayer by Sister Lucia

Prayer is necessary for all, and we must all pray, whether our prayer is vocal, mental or contemplative.
Vocal prayer– that is addressed to God in words.
Mental prayer– talk to God about the subject on which you are meditating, for example, an increase in faith, humility, charity or a spirit of sacrifice, in order to overcome our repugnances and difficulties, defects and temptations.
Contemplative prayer– even closer intimacy with God, in which those practising in it enter more deeply into presence of God within them, abandoning themselves more intimately to the work of the grace, light and love of God within them. Wrapped in a supernatural atmosphere, the soul allows itself to be imbued, raised up and transformed by the action of God within it, purifying and absorbing it.

There is another kind of prayer: it is the “Prayer of our work”, of the performance of all the duties in our state in life in a spirit of humble submission to God, because it was He who imposed on us the law of work.
There is nothing on earth which can be compared to the happiness experienced by a soul in intimate union with God!
“Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and it will be opened to you (Mt7, 7-8)

Sister Lucia’s last wish

Doctor Branca Paul spent 15 years with Sister Lucia and was her private physician. As they aquinted with each other, Sister Lucia shared many insights regarding the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima. Sister Lucia has written 2 lovely books concerning the apparitions and the Message of Fatima, and now her personal doctor  has helped to create the 2 film documentaries “The Call to Fatima”- the Story and the Message, this was the last wish of late visionary of Fatima-to spread the Message to the world.

Law of God in Lucia’s words

"We should engrave the law of God's love into our hearts" Sister Lucia of Fatima

"We should engrave the law of God's love into our hearts" Sister Lucia of Fatima

God’s insistence that we should engrave the law of his Love in our hearts, that we should use it as a symbol on our arm and a frontlet before our eyes, that we should have it written on the doors and doorposts of our houses, is in order to ensure that it should always be present to us, that we should meditate on it night and day, and that we should teach it to our children, to our brothers and sisters and to all those around us. It is to be the guide of our footsteps, that is, we must walk in the path of love.

The Great Promise of Our Lady of Fatima

                The Great Promise of Our Lady of Fatima
 
 

Our Lady appeared at Fatima in 1917  to three little children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, to warn the world, but also to bring a message of hope: “Finally my Immaculate Heart will triumph!”

In 1925  appeared to Sister Lucia, rested one hand on Lucia’s shoulder, while in the other hand she held a heart surrounded with thorns. Then Our Lady said to Lucia: “Look, my daughter, at my Heart surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce me at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude… You, at least, try to console me and say that I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who on the first Saturday for five consecutive months, will confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary and keep me a company for 15 minutes while meditating of the mysteries of the Rosary, with intention of making reparation.”This is how Five First Saturday devotion came about. Our Heavenly Mother gave it to Sister Lucia, encouraging the faithful to pray the Rosary more and more, meditating on it and practising the Sacrament of Confession and Eucharist. Let’s not forget that Our Lady and Our Lord Jesus are hurt every single moment. Sometimes even by us…  Tommorow is first Saturday of the Month. We encourage you to start this devotion, it is fine and purifying for our soul, and it helps to console Our Heavenly Mother. 

Remember this divine formula: 5 First Saturdays= Confession+ Mass & Eucharist +Rosary & 15.min Meditation+Intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
