Francisco’s quotes: “I am happier than you are, because I have the Hidden Jesus within my heart.”

“More than anything else I want to console Our Lord.”

“The worst thing would be if Our Lady never came back again! That is what hurts me most.”

“I would like to console Our Lord, and after that convert sinners so that they won’t offend Him any more.”

Jacintas’ quotes: “I am suffering a lot, but I offer everything for sinners, and in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

“Oh, how much I love to suffer for love of Our Lord and Our Lady, they greatly love those who suffer for the conversion of sinners.”

“Oh, my Jesus! This is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, for the Holy Father, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary!”

“More I think the more I suffer, and I want to suffer for love of Our Lord and for sinners.”At times, Jacinta kissed and embraced a crucifix, exclaiming: ”O my Jesus! I love You, and I want to suffer very much for love of You.”

Fátima Film night in Dungloe, Co.Donegal

Fátima Film night in Dungloe, Co.Donegal

The presentation of double award winning film titled “The Call to Fatima” will take place in St Cronas’ Church, Dungloe, Co. Donegal on Friday, 9th July at 7.30 pm. This presentation includes film clips, producers’ talk and lovely music by a special guest soprano Louise Irvine.

“The Call to Fatima” film is based on Sister Lucia’s writings, the last visionary of the Fatima apparitions. The film’s producer had received several requests to have it shown in different parishes around Ireland, including St Mel’s Cathedral in Longford, St Eunan’s Cathedral in Letterkenny, St Joseph’s Church in Dublin, SMA in Cork City and many more, as well as abroad.
The film, which took seven years to complete, was produced by Dubliner, Thomas McCormack, and has already won awards at film festivals in Poland (“St Maximilian Kolbe” award) and Belarus (“Magnificat 2009” award) for education.

“The Call to Fatima” has two parts: the first part tells the story of apparitions, prophecies, secrets and talks about the lives and deaths of three little children- Jacinta and Francisco Marto and their cousin Lucia dos Santos. The second part gives a viewer deeper inside in understanding the meaning of Fatima Message, which is as relevant today as was back in 1917.

Much of the second film was shot on location behind the Carmel monastery in Coimbra and many of the voice-overs including Sr. Lucia’s own singing voice, are from those who knew Sr Lucia personally, cousins, nephews, Carmelite nuns, her private doctor, close priests and friends. Altogether these people came to play a key part to bring this film to light.
St Crona’s Church welcomes everybody to attend this film night. Fore more information please contact PP Fr Seámus Meehan on 074-9521008. For further information on the film and its producers, simply log onto Web: www.thecalltofatima.com or Blog: www.thecalltofatima.wordpress.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/

25th March- feast of the Annunciation in Sister Lucia’s words

Sister Lucia talks about the Annunciation in her books "Calls from the message of Fatima"Through this feast day God reveals to us how the incarnation of the Word took place; He speaks to us of the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity, that is one God in three distinct Persons: “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God”.

God did not choose just any woman to be the Mother of His Son who, of course, could not assume a nature stained by sin. Therefore He made Mary immaculate from the first instant of her life, the moment of her conception; and she remained always a virgin. If Mary had not been full of grace and all holy, the Angel could not have said to her that she was full of grace, because she would have some stain of sin in her.

Through the merits of the Word made flesh, from whom we receive pardon and grace, we also, if we are fortunate enough to possess the gift of faith and to live a good life, are living temples of the adorable Trinity.
