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:

O Fátima, Farewell original song in Portuguese & English

O Fatima, Farewell! original song

O FATIMA, FAREWELL!

O Virgin of the Rosary
of Fatima dear Lady,
O dearest Queen of Heaven
to save thou’ art ever ready.
O Virgin of the Rosary of Fatima dear Lady,
As now we leave your sanctuary
once more we kneel before thee.

Refrain:
Just one more final prayer
as we leave, O Mother Mary!
May our hearts ever ring
with the words that we sing:
Oh Fatima! Farewell!
Mother dear, Farewell!

Before we leave O Mother
oh, hear our prayer of sorrow,
And save us from all danger
today, tonight, tomorrow.
Before we leave, O Mother
have mercy on our sorrow,
And ever be our guardian,
today, tonight, tomorrow.

O Mother as we leave you
the tears to our eyes are springing,
But still our hearts with happiness,
your love, your praise are singing.
O Mother as we leave you
our eyes with tears are dimming,
But though we weep at parting
our souls with love are brimming.

Sister Lucia’s last wish

Doctor Branca Paul spent 15 years with Sister Lucia and was her private physician. As they aquinted with each other, Sister Lucia shared many insights regarding the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima. Sister Lucia has written 2 lovely books concerning the apparitions and the Message of Fatima, and now her personal doctor  has helped to create the 2 film documentaries “The Call to Fatima”- the Story and the Message, this was the last wish of late visionary of Fatima-to spread the Message to the world.

Heaven, Hell, Purgatory do exist!

www.thecalltofatima.com

Sister Lucia wrote in book “The Message of Fatima” the following: Remember two young girls, my playmates, who had died, I asked: “Is Maria Das Neves already in Heaven?
The Lady replied:”Yes, she is.”
And Amelia? “She will be in purgatory until the end of the world.”

I have been asked many questions about this reply from Our Lady, and I do not really know the answers to them. I did not ask Our Lady herself for an explanation, it was too small a thing for me to remember to do so. But I have thought a great deal about this detail of the Message.

After all, I ask myself, what is purgatory? The dictionary tells us that it is a place of punishment in which the souls of the just are purified before being admitted to heavenly bliss.
So we see that the word “purgatory” means “purifications”, and seeing that we are all more or less sinners, we all need to purify ourselves from our sins, faults and imperfections in order to be admitted to the joy ofpossesing the Kingdom of eternal glory.”
“The Message of Fatima” page 32-33

Our Lady of Fatima requested

“Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are most in need.”

The National Fatima Conference took place in University College Cork on 30th October 2010 in Boole No.4. The conference theme “Lead All Souls to Heaven” was a direct response to Pope Benedict’s letter to the Irish people to pray, meditate and repent and follow the word of God and His commandments. It was a full day event starting at 10am and finishing at 5pm. The organisers The Call to Fatima team who produced the double award film documentaries based entirely on Sr Lucia’s writings has the approval of the Fatima Shrine, Carmel of Coimbra and supported by the Vatican. The conference was free admission with prior booking requirements and free car park space was made available.

Eucharistic Adoration at the National Fatima Conference 2010

Speakers: Fr Michael Maher SM spoke about the obedience and to follow the Pope and the Church during these hard times. Sister Angela Coelho, Vice Postulator for the Blessed Jacinta and Blessed Francisco’s cause spoke in detail about the two little shepherds before and after the apparitions of Our Lady, as well as their characters and concerns during their life. The second talk of Sr Angela was on the devotion to the Five First Saturdays, as Our Lady requested to Sister Lucia in 1925. Thomas McCormack, the producer/ director of the film “The Call to Fatima” spoke about the Message of Fatima in reference to his film and Sister Lucia’s last book “Calls from the Message of Fatima”. All talks were exciting and very inspiring, according to many people who came and expressed their thoughts.

The day started with the Rosary, following talks, followed by the Angelus and the Brown Scapular enrolment by Fr Michael Maher. Father beforehand explained the meaning/ history and importance of this sacramental. The conference atmosphere was created by the beautiful singing of soprano Louise Irvine and her brother on keyboard Christopher Irvine, involving all in Fatima and Marian hymns.

The stage was enriched by Our Lady’s statue and the statues of 3 little shepherds brought from Co. Kerry by John and Patricia Heaphey.  Faithful could also participate in the Eucharistic Adoration, that was available all day in a special room. The Eucharistic Adoration was organised and supported by Perpetual Adoration Group, who carry out such work all over Ireland by John Howard and his team of dedicated supporters. A special Fatima gallery of 150 A4 photographs was displayed for the students and visitors for the first  time upon entrance. The National Fatima Conference had a coverage in the Catholic Voice and The Universe in England.

The conference’s break was between 12.30pm and 2pm for lunch, Confessions and Adoration. “How to make a Good Confession” leaflets were displayed at the entrance to the Confessions room. Many people used a great opportunity once again to reconcile with Our Lord. The day was supported by volunteers, who guided people to their seats, helped with the registration and handout material.

Farewell to Our Lady of Fatima The Fatima Conference concluded with the Holy Mass, which was the highlight of the day. Before the Holy Mass Fr Michael Maher brought the Most Holy Sacrament to the conference hall for the 30 minutes Eucharistic Blessing. The Franciscan brothers of the Most Holy Trinity Church helped to set up the Mass requirements and provided the altar cloths, chalices, wine and hosts for the Mass. During the Mass everyone was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, entrusting themselves to her guidance and care. This act of consecration was lead by Father Maher to renewed devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. An the end of the Mass the faithful were waiving goodbye to Our Lady with their white napkins singing the hymn “O Fatima, Farewell!” After the National Fatima Conference, people were inquiring about the next venue to bring this conference to various Dioceses in 2011.

Some of the feedback by those who attended:
