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  Our Lady 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,

  1. go to Confession,
  2. receive the Holy Communion
  3. recite five decades of the Rosary
  4. keep me a company for 15 minutes while meditating of the mysteries of the Rosary, with intention of making reparation.”

This is how the 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 receiving the Sacraments of the Confession and the Eucharist.

Let’s not forget that Our Lady and Our Lord Jesus are hurt every single moment by countless sins. 

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

Five First Saturdays- Promise of Our Lady

Five First Saturdays devotion https://thecalltofatima.com

Our Lady promised “to assist at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for salvation” those who make the Five First Saturdays of Reparation to Her Immaculate Heart.

Sister Lucia tells us that Our Blessed Lord Himself said to her that He wanted devotion to the Immaculate Heart of His Mother to be “extended and placed beside devotion to My Divine Heart.”

Our Lady revealed to Sr.Lucia that there are 5 types of blasphemy against the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

1) Blasphemies against the Immaculate  Conception

2) Blasphemies against Mary’s Virginity

3) Blasphemies against her Divine Maternity

4) Blasphemies that seek to implant in the hearts of children indifference, contempt and even hatred for their Immaculate Mother

5) Blasphemies insulting Our Lady in her sacred images

Remember what Our Lady promised: “My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God”.

 

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.

Prayer for Humility

Prayer for Humility


Oh my Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you,

Teach me the wisdom of true Humility,

Give me the courage to accept from the Holy Spirit

Just what was, is, to be.

Let my thoughts be always Charitable

And help me to be Obedient

and give a Good Example to others.

Oh, my beloved, thou also My God,

Make my heart a flame of pure love for you.

Give me this virtue of Humility

To Know, Understand and live my life

In order to become like Jesus

At the hour and moment

at midnight in Bethlehem in piercing cold.

Forgive me Jesus, for all my weaknesses and temptations,

And help me to renounce the world, the flesh and the devil,

in order to live in a closer unity with my heavenly Father,

so that I may unite myself with you.

Amen.

P.S. This prayer was compiled as the Old Year merged into the New Millenium by Thomas McCormack, the producer/ director of film- documentary  “The Call to Fátima”  http://www.thecalltofatima.com/

Pope gunman wants to visit Fatima shrine


Mehmet Ali Ağca, who shot Pope John Paul II, wants to attend annual ceremonies at Portugal’s Fatima shrine and meet with Pope Benedict XVI, who is also scheduled to attend, his lawyer said on Thursday.

Lawyer Hacı Ali Özhan told the Associated Press he has written to Portugal’s president and prime minister seeking permission for Ağca to travel there for the May 13 event. A letter was also sent to the Vatican, requesting a meeting between Benedict and Ağca at Fatima, Özhan said. Neither Lisbon or the Vatican have replied to the March 16 letters, which were made available to the AP. Ağca was released from prison in January after completing a sentence for the 1979 killing of Turkish newspaper editor Abdi İpekçi. Ağca shot John Paul II on May 13, 1981, as the pope rode in an open car in St. Peter’s Square, during a period in which he had escaped from prison. The pontiff was hit in the abdomen, left hand and right arm. The motive for the attack remains a mystery.

Sister Lucia wrote her last book “Calls from the Message of Fatima” for the world

Last visionary of Fatima Sister Lucia

Book “Calls from the Message of Fatima” is easy to read on account of the coherence and simplicity of the themes discussed and their applications.

Lucia is thus seen to be in full harmony with the faith of the Church and with the faith of simple people. This book runs parallel to the profound theological demands of the Christian life and also the vital breath of a popular, Christological and Marian piety, which is both simple and universal.

Sister Lucia reveals one of the most authentic qualities of true Marian piety: coherence with the Gospel, a profound ecclesial sense, the universality of the Christian message. She also wrote this book in the ability to dedicate both mind and heart, the realistic approach to the problems of life and death, of day-to-day life and the most authentic experiences which have as their point of reference the last realitie escatology: Purgatory,  Hell, Heaven. Many important and original things are woven into Lucia’s book. It reveals Mary’s commandment.

Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Call to devotion to

the Immaculate Heart of Mary


“Jesus wants …to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart.”

To establish in the world devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary means to bring people to a full consecration through conversion, self-dedication, intimate esteem, veneration and love. Thus, it is in this spirit of consecration and conversion that God wishes to establish in the world devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

We all know, that a mother’s heart represents love in the bosom of a family.  In fact, it is love which makes the mother bend over her  baby’s cradle, sacrifice herself for it, give herself, rush to the defence of her child. All children trust in the heart of their mother, and we all know that we have in her a place of special affection.

The same applies to the Virgin Mary. Thus the Message says: “My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.”

More detailed information and documented material about devotion to Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Message of Fatima can be seen on the DVD “The Call to Fátima”, which comes in combination with Sister Lucia’s last book “Calls from the Message of Fátima” http://www.thecalltofatima.com/

“Most Holy Trinity,  Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore thee profoundly. I offer Thee 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 indifferences by which He is offended.
