Our Lady of Fatima and the Eucharist
By Thomas and Solvita- Elizabeth McCormack
The Call to Fatima
There is no doubt, Fatima certainly gives us light for these times on the Eucharist. The last time Ireland held the International Eucharistic Congress was in 1932 and less was known about Fatima and the Eucharist at that time. It was only in the 1940’s when the Servant of God Sister Lucia’s memoirs were first published, that more was known about the apparitions of the Angel to the three little children in the Spring, Summer and Autumn of 1916 and the Most Holy Trinity visitation to her in 1929.
The Angel’s first words to them were: “Do not be afraid! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.” He then taught them the following prayer: “My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you.”
While the children were playing at the well in Lucia’s parents garden the Angel came a second time. “What are you doing?” he asked. “Pray, pray very much! The most holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary have designs of mercy on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High.” Lucia then asked how they were to make sacrifices.
“Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which he is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners. You will thus draw down peace upon your country. I am its Angel Guardian, the Angel of Portugal. Above all, accept and bear with submission, the suffering which the Lord will send you.”
On the third visit of the Angel he was holding a chalice in his left hand, with the Host suspended above it, from which some drops of blood fell into the chalice. Leaving the chalice suspended in the air, the Angel knelt down beside the children and made them repeat three times the following prayer:
“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly, and I offer You 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 indifference with which He Himself is offended. And, through the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of you the conversion of poor sinners.”
Then, rising, he took the chalice and the Host in his hands. He gave the Sacred Host to Lucia, and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did so:
“Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.”
That prayer to the Most Holy Trinity is certainly very beautiful and powerful. We could say now that it would seem to have been taught for our times, when the tabernacle in our churches is surrounded today by emptiness and indifference, and where many live as if Jesus were not there. How many today when they enter the church for liturgical functions are not aware of His Divine and real presence in our midst? Often Jesus in the Eucharist is placed in some isolated corner whereas he should be placed in the centre of the church, and He should be placed at the centre of our ecclesial gatherings, because the church is his temple which has been built first for Him and then for us.
In these times too how many communions are made, and how many sacrileges perpetrated! How great this wound which has surely contaminated the whole Church and paralyses it, halts it, and makes it impure and so very sick!
There must now be a clarion call for the full return of the whole Church Militant to Jesus present in the Eucharist. Because there alone is to be found the spring of living water which will purify its aridity and renew the desert to which it has been reduced; there alone is to be found the secret of life which will open up for it a second Pentecost of grace and light; there alone is to be found the fount of its renewed holiness: Jesus in the Eucharist!
Lucia records for us in her memoirs “Fatima in Lucia’s own words” the vision that occurred on the 13th June 1929.
“I had sought and obtained permission from my superiors and confessor to make a Holy Hour from eleven o’clock until midnight, every Thursday to Friday. Being alone one night, I knelt near the altar rails in the middle of the chapel and, prostrate, I prayed the prayers of the Angel. Feeling tired, I then stood up and continued to say the prayers with my arms in the form of a cross. The only light was that of the sanctuary lamp. Suddenly the whole chapel was illumined by a supernatural light, and above the altar appeared a cross of light, reaching to the ceiling. In a brighter light on the upper part of the cross, could be seen the face of a man and his body as far as the waist, upon his breast was a dove also of light and nailed to the cross was the body of another man. A little below the waist, I could see a chalice and a large host suspended in the air, on to which drops of blood were falling from the face of Jesus Crucified and from the wound in His side. These drops ran down on to the host and fell into the chalice. Beneath the right arm of the cross was Our Lady and in her hand was her Immaculate Heart. (It was Our Lady of Fatima, with her Immaculate Heart in her left hand, without sword or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames). Under the left arm of the cross, large letters, as if of crystal clear water which ran down upon the altar, formed these words: ‘Graces, Mercy.’
This is surely a great mystery, which Sr Lucia ponders for many years in her cell in Coimbra, Portugal. In her last book “Calls from the message of Fatima,” she refers to the Most Holy Trinity as the ninth call of the Fatima message. “We are dealing with a mystery that only in Heaven will we be able to comprehend perfectly”. Sr. Lucia uses the example of an orange to help us understand this mystery. “If we pick an orange for example, we remove the skin, we take out the seeds, which can be grown and we are left with the sections that we eat. Thus in a single orange we have three separate things which have three separate purposes. Then why should we be astonished to find three distinct Persons –Father, Son and Holy Spirit –in one God? If we choose to listen, all created things speak to us of God the Creator.”
Mary’s Immaculate Heart is for her Son, a living, beating, motherly tabernacle of love, of adoration, of thanksgiving and of unceasing reparation.
Wherever the Son is, there too the Father and the Holy Spirit are always present. Just as, in the glory of heaven, Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, in intimate union with the Holy Spirit, so also when, at the bidding of the priest, He becomes present in the Eucharist and is placed in the safekeeping of the tabernacle, surrounded by Mary’s motherly Heart; close to the Son there is always the real presence of the Father and the real presence of the Holy Spirit; there is always present the Divine and Most Holy Trinity.
In Ireland The Most Holy Trinity is the supreme authority in the Irish Constitution. The Irish people honour The Trinity by obeying his laws; we revile The Trinity when we turn our back on Him. How? The Servant of God Sr Lucy explains how in her last book before she died “Calls from the message of Fatima”.
“It may possibly occur to someone to ask me: What have the Ten Commandments got to do with the Message of Fatima? I answer that they have a great deal to do with it: they are among the chief aims of the Message”. Our Lady ended the series of her apparition’s in Fatima with these words: “Do not offend the Lord our God anymore, because He is already so much offended”. There can be no doubt that what offends God the most is the breaking of his law”.
The recent writings left behind by Sr Lucia is in effect a long letter to all those who have written to her concerning their doubts, questions, and difficulties , and their desires for greater fidelity in living up to what was asked for from Heaven in the Cova da Iria (Cove of Peace) in Fatima 1917.
Sr Lucia reminds us again in the book ‘Calls’: “Please do not look upon this communication as something that comes from myself. Look upon it as the echo of the voice of God, and let us all willingly endeavour to follow faithfully the path that He has mapped out for us. Yes, because it was out of love that God sent us this pressing call from his mercy, in order to help us along the way of our salvation”.
In the preface of Sr Lucia’s book “Calls from the message of Fatima” she quotes Blessed John Paul II who said “If the Church accepted the message of Fatima, it is above all because it contains a truth and a summons which are in essence the truth and the summons of the Gospel itself”

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.

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/
