The Year we especially remember Our Lady’s visit in Fatima

As we celebrate this special Indulgence year of 100th anniversary of Fatima apparitions, we wish to outline some initiatives for you in honour of Our Lady:

  • Please do everything you can to start and to promote Five First Saturday devotion in your parish. Our Lady promised to assist in the hour of death to all those who would take up this devotion (see leaflet attached)
  • This year we officially launched “The School of Mary” educational package for primary school teachers and parents. We are currently raising much needed funds to be able to send a package to each school in Ireland. We would like to encourage you to obtain a copy of 10 in 1 material (best price guaranteed) to give it to your teacher/ pastor. For more info visit https://thecalltofatima.com/Fatima-School-of-Mary-package-for-teachers-and-parents-10-in-1-p84438444   
  • Please pray for our work as “The harvest indeed is great, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send labourers into his harvest.” [Lk 10:2]

Discover the Truth

“The  culture  in which we live is very secularized  and pretends to carry on as if God did not exist; it also teaches us that the truth is whatever I fashion it to be and what’s good is whatever pleases me.  Of course, this is false. As Pope Benedict XVI said in his address to the Roman Curia this past year, such ideas come from a false notion of freedom, which leaves people enslaved to various material realities and, as a result, profoundly unhappy.

What we need to discover is the Truth which is revealed in such a striking way in the life of Christ, whose total obedience to the will of the Father, total obedience to the way that God the Father shows us,both in Ten Commandments and in the Beatitudes, is the way of pure and selfless love, is the only way to our happiness.

If  you look in the Gospels for that virtue which most characterizes the love of Christ for the Father and for all mankind for whom He poured out His life, it is obedience- “I have come not to do my will but the will of Him who sent me.”-Christ was obedient even to death on the Cross.

Repay Love with Love!

“The work of creation is a work of love. God created us out of love. Like a father, He guides our steps along the paths of life. You shall therefore love the Lord your God, and keep his charge, his statutes, his ordinances and his commandments always.(Dt 11, 1-2)

It was love that moved God to create us, to redeem us by sending his Son, who offered Himself as a victim of expiation to be paid on our behalf, in order to make reparation for our sins. If God had not loved us, we would not exist; we should have remained in nothingness. Hence, it is our duty, in gratitude, in appreciation, in justice and in equity, to love God above all things, to repay Love with love, to pay for love with love, as we Portuguese say.”

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.

Ash Wednesday, 9th March 2011

Ash Wednesday is a day of repentance and it marks the beginning of Lent, 40 days of prayer, fasting, works of charity and silence, because in silence we can meet God more often.

Take your time to read the Bible more to understand a Word of God, encourage others to pray, for example, start a family Rosary, if it is not yet in your family, watch not the Television, but religious films and documentaries, give a hand to those who are looking for help and support, try to escape noise and hassle to be in quite with Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament, perhaps you have a possibility to attend daily Mass or go to the retreat, all we want to say is, treat yourself spiritually. Your soul is worth it to have a spiritual renewal during this special Lent time!

Have a blessed and spiritually fulfilled 40 days!
