100th Fatima Anniversary Special Indulgence

         Our Lady of Fatima www.thecalltofatima.com100th Fatima Anniversary Special Indulgence

For the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal, Pope Francis has decided to grant a plenary indulgence opportunity throughout the entire anniversary year, which began Nov. 27, 2016, and will end Nov. 26, 2017.

 There are three ways of obtaining the indulgence. To obtain the plenary indulgence, the faithful must also fulfil the ordinary conditions : go to Confession and Communion, be interiorly detached from sin, and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.

  1. Make a pilgrimage to the shrine

The first way is for “the faithful to make a pilgrimage to the Fatima Shrine in Portugal and participate in a celebration or prayer dedicated to the Virgin.” In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed, and invoke the Mother of God.

  1. Pray before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima

The second way applies to “the pious faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October (2017), and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honour of the Virgin Mary.”

Regarding this second way, the rector of the Fatima Shrine stated that the visit to the statue of the Virgin, “does not necessarily have to be only at Fatima or exclusively in Portugal,” but can be done anywhere in the world.

Those seeking an indulgence must also pray an Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima pray for us.

  1. The elderly and infirm

The third way to obtain a plenary indulgence applies to people who, because of age, illness or other serious cause, are unable to get around.

These individuals can pray in front of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima and must spiritually unite themselves to the jubilee celebrations on the days of the apparitions, the 13th of each month, between May and October 2017.

They also must “offer to merciful God with confidence, through Mary, their prayers and sufferings or the sacrifices they make in their own lives.”

Welcome the youngest Saints in the History of the Church, Saint Francisco and Saint Jacinta Marto

Saint Francisco and Jacinta Marto

All Catholic Church rejoices in adding two Saints to its numbers: Saint Francisco and Saint Jacinta Marto, the brother and sister, canonized on 13th May 2017 by Pope Francis during His Papal pilgrimage to Fatima, Portugal.  Saint Francisco  (10) and Saint Jacinta (9) are the youngest non-martyr saints in the History of the Church!

Thanks to the intercession of Francisco and Jacinta, miracle happened,that helped to canonize the Saints:five year old Brazilian boy fell out of a window and damaged his head, which lead to the loss of brain tissue and very quickly coma. Boy’s condition was deteriorating rapidly. Parents began to pray to Jesus and Our Lady of Fatima. After begging for more urgent prayers in Carmelite Convent, one of the Sisters ran to the relics of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta, which were next to the Tabernacle, and felt the impulse to pray the following prayer: ‘Shepherds, save this child, who is a child like you’…she also persuaded the other sisters to pray to the little shepherds to intercede for him.”

All community prayed, and the boy awoke from deep coma few days later. “The doctors, some of them non-believers, said that his recovery had no explanation.” It was a miracle needed to promote cause of Sainthood of two children of Fatima!Little boy was completely cured!Praise God!

Saint Francisco, Saint Jacinta, pray for us!

New book launched on Our Lady of Fatima 2017: The Call to Fatima-the Missed Message

A new book has been launched during the 100th Fatima Anniversary and coincided with the canonization of Saint Francisco and Saint Jacinta Marto by Pope Francis in Rome. The authors Thomas and Solvita McCormack had three unique influences to help them write their new book titled:-

The Call to Fatima – The Missed Message:

They had access to the writings of the servant of God Sr. Lucia before and after  she died.

They had access to those who knew the servant of God Sr. Lucia personally             and who wanted to share their knowledge to what Sr. Lucia wanted the world to know about Fatima.

People from around the world approached the film directors to give their               support to make Sr. Lucia’s writings into a double award winning film titled The Call to Fatima: The Story and the Message and translated into twelve languages.

Their privileged position and unique insight shaped and influenced them to write down their accumulated knowledge in the hope that The Call to Fatima- The Missed Message will save souls from eternal death.

It was Cardinal Ratzinger (now retired Pope Benedict XVI) who signed off Sr. Lucia’s book “Calls from the Message of Fatima” for the Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican. He turned to the late Fr. Luis Kondor, the Vice Postulator for Blessed Francisco and Jacinta Marto and stated, “Calls from the Message of Fatima is the most important book for Catholics for twenty-first century.” When Fr. Luis Kondor gave Thomas McCormack permission to start “The Call to Fatima” films, it dawned on them and many others that the majority of Catholics missed the central message of Fatima.

The chapter to Pope Francis is pleading with some urgency to revive the Five First Saturday Devotion and restore the daily family rosary around the world, in order that the Fatima promise of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary can be accelerated as requested by Pope Benedict XVI in Fatima on the 13 May 2010.

Without knowing it at the time, this work first started for Thomas McCormack on the 13 May 1999, and the authors have no doubt that the hand of God through Mary made it possible. It is yet another example of how much God loves us and how much he wants to save our souls.

This book “The Call to Fatima -The Missed Message” includes the two DVDs “The Call to Fatima” and and other Fatima material and is available now:
