Here is the consecration prayer recited by Pope Francis in consecrating the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

Holy Mary Virgin of Fatima,                                                                       

with renewed gratitude for your maternal presence

we join our voice to that of all the generations

who call you blessed.

We celebrate in you the works of God,

who never tires of looking down with mercy

upon humanity, afflicted with the wound of sin,

to heal it and save it.

Accept with the benevolence of a Mother

the act of consecration that we perform today with confidence,

before this image of you that is so dear to us.

We are certain that each of us is precious in your eyes

and that nothing of all that lives in our hearts is unknown to you.

 We let ourselves be touched by your most sweet regard

  and we welcome the consoling caress of your smile.

  Hold our life in your arms:

 bless and strengthen every desire for good;

revive and nourish faith;

sustain and enlighten hope;

awaken and animate charity;

guide all of us along the path of holiness

 Teach us your own preferential love

  for the little and the poor,

  for the excluded and the suffering,

  for sinners and the downhearted:

  bring everyone under your protection

  and entrust everyone to your beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus.

                                                                                                     Amen.

Pope Francis consecrates his pontificate to Our Lady of Fatima on May 13th 2013

Messages of Our Lady of Fatima available in 12 languages

Messages of Our Lady of Fatima now are revelant more than ever in history. Our Lady came down from heaven and appeared in humble village of Fatima to three little shepherds- Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia. This all was back in 1917. But today we look back at the history and our current state and we realise, we had to answer to Our Lady’s requests and warnings with the biggest respect and urgency.

Message of Fatima is a call urging us for Penance, Forgiveness, Hope + Love +Faith, Reflection on Eternal Life, a call to Devotion, Perfection, Holiness and Total Consecration. God entrusted His Message through his most holy Mother to the humble little shepherds of the Cova da Iria, in order to convey once again his perennial calls to the people of today. The entire Message of Fatima is a call to pay attention to His divine Law.

“The Call to Fátima” is a 2-part film documentary explaining the story and the message of Fatima in great detail. This film is based on the last visionary’s of Fatima  Sister Lucia dos Santos writings, namely her first book “Fatima in Lucia’s own words” and “Calls from the Message of Fatima”. Messages of Fatima are now available in 12 languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German, Polish, Slovak, Latvian, Russian, Chinese and Arabic) via these books and “The Call to Fatima” film.

Sister Lucia’s last wish was to spread the Message of Fatima and make it known to as many poeple as possible. Our Lady tought this prayer to little children : “Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead ALL SOULS to heaven especially those most in need.” Please God, more and more people may learn, understand and evangelise the Message of Fátima, the Message of Penance, Forgiveness and great Hope. Ave Maria!

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/
