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:

Pope Benedict XVI reflects on 40 days of Lent

Pope: Lent a time for mature decisions

The 40 days of Lent, reflecting Christ’s 40 days in the desert, were the focus of Pope Benedict XVI’s catechesis this Ash Wednesday. Speaking to pilgrims in the Paul VI audience hall, the Holy Father reflected on the condition of the pilgrim Church in the “desert” of the world and history. 

Pope said, that the period of 40 days “does not represent an exact chronological time, divided by the sum of the days. Rather it indicates a patient perseverance, a long trial, a sufficient period to see the works of God, a time within which we must make up our minds and to decide to accept our own responsibilities without additional references. It is the time for mature decisions”.

Pope Benedict also said: “In this “desert” we believers certainly have the opportunity to profoundly experience God, an experience that makes the spirit strong, confirms the faith, nourishes hope, animates charity; an experience that makes us partakers of Christ’s victory over sin and death through the Sacrifice of love on the Cross.

But the “desert” is also the negative aspects of the reality that surrounds us: the arid, the poverty of words of life and of values, secularism and the materialist culture, which shut people within a horizon of mundane existence, robbing them of all reference to transcendence. And this is also the environment in which the sky above us is obscured, because covered by the clouds of egoism, misunderstanding and deception. Despite this, even for the Church of today the period in the desert can be transformed into a time of grace, because we have the certainty that even from the hardest rock God can bring forth the living water that refreshes and restores”.

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
