The 100th Anniversary of Fatima and the Jubilee Year of Mercy

The Call to Fatima 071The 100th Anniversary of Fatima and the

                       Jubilee Year of Mercy

 

In the 1940’s Servant of God Sister Lucia’s memoirs were published and for the first time more was known about the apparitions of the Angel to the three little children – Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco in Spring, Summer and Autumn of 1916 and the visitation of the Most Holy Trinity to Lucia in 1929. Let us remind you what took place in 1916 in Fatima.

The Angels Visit 1916

The Angel’s first words to the three children in Spring 1916 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 during the summer of 1916, 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 in Autumn 1916, 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 “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 some churches are surrounded today by emptiness and indifference and many carry on as if Jesus were not present with all the chatter taking place in front of the tabernacle. The Angel teaches us through the three children to go grow in the spiritual life of our soul, so that we too can live a life of faith, hope and love.

We observe many communions are received with no regard for confession and one wonders how many sacrileges are 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!

The great battle for souls to be saved

One hundred years after the Angels visit in Fatima, humanity in 2016 is mounting a greater denial and rebellion against God. The tolerance of Catholics to disobey the Ten Commandments and choosing to sin is driving many Catholics away from the church including some religious. The Sacrament of Confession and the neglect of family prayer (The family Rosary) are replaced for the quest for pleasures. Television has now replaced the Family Rosary for most Catholic countries. The pride of the social media gloat about their successful relentless campaign to create the environment for mortal sin to flourish under the so called ‘new freedoms and rights’ such as divorce, abortion and homosexuality, made into law around the world.

Year of Mercy 2016

As a young family we have warmly welcomed The Jubilee Year of Mercy by Pope Francis which began on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (8th December) and will run until the Solemnity of Christ the King (20th November 2016). A jubilee refers to a special year of remission of sins and universal pardon. The last jubilee was held in the year 2000.  Pope Francis opened the door of mercy for the whole church to enter into to seek forgiveness from God, who always forgives and we as sinners must be open to receive God’s grace and mercy.

In Ireland, The Most Holy Trinity is the supreme authority in the Irish Constitution. The Irish people honour The Trinity by obeying His laws. The Irish people revile The Trinity when we turn our back on Him by creating laws against the Ten Commandments. The Servant of God Sr Lucia explains for us in her memoirs “Fatima in Lucia’s own words” the vision of the Most Holy Trinity that she saw on the 13th June 1929.

“ 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.’

Vision of the Most Holy Trinity www.thecalltofatima.com

 

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” she states

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. Mary’s Immaculate Heart is for her Son, a living, beating, motherly tabernacle of love, of adoration, of thanksgiving and of unceasing reparation. In fact this is the very thing that the Irish Constitution is set out to do – to keep our vision in line with the preamble of an everlasting family union with the Most Holy Trinity. The Irish people have truly offended the Most Holy Trinity by introducing laws against the Ten Commandments.

A time for the Irish Nation to seek forgiveness

Sr Lucia reminds us again in the book ‘Calls’. “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 order to understand forgiveness, the Irish people must understand clearly how as a Nation we offend God and one another?

Sr Lucia addresses this question very well for us in her writings, “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 in 1917 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”.

Is it any wonder why Servant of God Sr Lucia of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart placed the Ten Commandments as one of the chief messages of Fatima in her book “Calls”. In fact Sr Lucia allocates forty six pages to explaining the Ten Commandments, thirty two pages on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary and one hundred and forty two pages covering such aspects as faith, hope, love, forgiveness, prayer, sacrifice, Eucharist, Most Holy Trinity, Heaven,  holiness, family life, and adoration. Some practising Catholics would call these the basics of our faith and yet somehow, Satan has removed the basic teaching of the Catholic Church from our conscience. Jesus Christ states very clearly in scripture “If you love me, you will keep my Commandments and one offends God when breaking His laws of love.

The constant attack built up against the Ten Commandments brought with it the evil vices of impurity, divorce, abortion, abusive drugs, drink, embryo research, same sex marriage, child pornography, prostitution, teen sex, crime, suicide and innocent people losing their lives and destroying families and society in general.  The Irish people need to seek forgiveness.

Five First Saturday and the Year of Mercy

In parallel to the breaking of the Ten Commandments, the poor attendance of weekly Sunday Mass combined with confession has all but disappeared. Our Lady of Fatima asked Sr Lucia to spread the Five First Saturday devotion which required Catholics to confess and receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary and to spend fifteen minutes meditating on the  mysteries with the intention making reparation to Our Lady. Servant of God Sr Lucia wanted more Bishops and Priests to encourage the faithful to practice the Five First Saturday devotion for special graces. In fact the Child Jesus visited Sr Lucia to remind us to do what Our Lady requested. See full page ad for Sr Lucia account of this story.

Our Lady in Fatima has asked us to multiply the devotion to the Five First Saturdays everywhere. The Irish Nation must be humble enough to seek the protection of the Her Immaculate Heart by reciting the daily Rosary and carry out the Five First Saturday devotion during this Jubilee Year of Mercy and through the Holy Spirit will bring us closer to the second Pentecost as foretold in Gospel.

The Call to Fatima Invitation for 2016

The Call to Fatima invite all lay Catholic groups to display the Five First Saturday ad in the parish church during the Jubilee Year of Mercy.and invite Bishops and Priests to support this devotion.  Many groups like Precious Life who continue to protect human life need many graces from Heaven to succeed in their work. Similarly, those fighting to protect the 8 amendment in the Irish Constitution also need great graces to protect the family. The Five First Saturday devotion is a further reminder during the Year of Mercy to encourage you to “lead all souls to Heaven”,

The Call to Fatima is available to give parish presentation on Fatima in 2016 and we can be reached by email: srluciacalltofatima@gmail.com or by phone + 353-87-2229135 Blog www.thecalltofatima.wordpress.com

 

 

 

Catholic Conference on Fatima at University College Cork

Catholic Conference on Fatima

The Call to Fatima

“Lead all souls to heaven”

by William A. Thomas

The first ever conference on the Call to Fatima was held at University College Cork on Saturday the 30th of October 2010. This conference came about as a result of a workshop which was organised by Miss Solvita Kivlina on the 4th anniversary of the death of Sister Lucy on the 14th of February 2009 at All Hallows College in Dublin.

The Conference was opened by Father Michael Maher SM who is a Marist priest and who has a passionate devotion to Our Lady. He explained to delegates that the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima in 1917 to three young children are probably the most dramatic and urgent intervention of Our Lady to suffering humanity, broken by sin and rejection of God’s love and salvation.

three little shepherds of Fatima 1917The three children chosen by Heaven to deliver this message were Lucia Dos Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto who were brother and sister aged 9, 8, and 6 respectively. The first apparitions happened in 1916 when an Angel appeared to them and taught them several profound prayers that they should recite informing them that the “Hearts of Jesus and Mary were attentive to the voice of their supplications.”

The Angel who described himself as the Angel of Portugal appeared on two more occasions to prepare the children to “offer sacrifices continually to the Most High” and to make everything that they did a sacrifice which was offered in reparation “for the sins by which God is offended and as a petition for the conversation of sinners.” On the 13th of May in 1917 Our Lady appeared to the three young children who were minding sheep at the Cova da Iria, which was a very large field in Fatima not far from Aljustrel where the children lived.

Father Michael Maher, narrator in The Call to Fatima film www.thecalltofatima.com After the introductory talk Father Maher led the delegates in reciting the holy Rosary while giving passionate meditations on each mystery, admonishing delegates to never abandon the Rosary. In between each decade world renowned Irish soprano Louis Irvine sang sacred songs to the delight of the delegates who were moved by the beauty of her voice and her dedication to her music which gave great honour to Our Lady.

The Conference had some 400 delegates from every corner of Ireland north and south, and who were all enrolled in the Brown Scapular once the holy Rosary was completed. Delegates were also told that 9 nine priest were available for confessions and that a special chapel had been prepared for Eucharistic adoration throughout the day.

Conference organiser was Thomas McCormack a Dublin based Film Producer and Managing Director of Euro Finance Group whose motto is “When goodness is put before profit.” He told delegates that Sister Lucy had received millions of letters throughout her life asking questions related to the message of Fatima. He explained that from the time of the apparitions in 1917 to the day she died in 2005 at the age of 97, many people were concerned by various aspects of their faith, their lives and their involvement or lack thereof in the life and mission of the Church.

Thomas McCormack, the producer / director of The Call to Fatima film Sister Lucy had decided to write a book entitled “Calls from the Message of Fatima.” This book McCormack said “summarised all the questions that people had and were continuing to ask about their faith and what if any, had Fatima to do with them” he said. The book, he continued was her response to the millions of letters which she wanted to respond to personally to but was unable, so with the permission of the Holy See, Sister Lucy put pen to paper and wrote in the style of a long letter, addressed to all those who had written to her concerning their doubts, desires and difficulties, and in living up with greater fidelity what was asked of them from Heaven. The most important message of this book Thomas Mc Cormack told attentive delegates was contained on page 207 of the 304 page book, which concerned the 10 commandments. He went on to say that this call was the kernel and chief aim of the message of Fatima. “Sister Lucy was told by Our Lady to learn how to read, in order that she could write down the message and transmit it to the Church, who would give it its full approval before giving the message to the entire world- sadly he said only 4% of the world’s population know about it.

In speaking to the children in Fatima, he went on, Our Lady told them” I will tell you who I am and what I want” and later she would reveal Herself as the Lady of the Rosary. Ironically, McCormack stated “that in the last show of “Questions and Answers” hosted by John Bowman of RTE, the audience was asked what Ireland should do now that it was facing the abyss- to which the unanimous answer was that we should return to the 10 commandments and to prayer.

Therefore the laity has a big role to play in promoting the faith in parishes and in other areas he said. “I have taken this book the “Calls” of Sister Lucy and have put its essential contents in DVD film and translated it into 12 languages for the benefit of those who don’t read or don’t want to read” said an impassioned McCormack “so that the important message of Fatima is spread throughout the world for the Glory of God, the honour of Our Lady and the salvation of souls. The book and DVD “Calls to Fatima” have the full authorisation and approval of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Carmelite Nuns of Coimbra, and the Sacred Sanctuary of Fatima.

The DVD recently won first prize at the Saint Maximillian Kolbe International Film Festival. Delegates to the Conference were also given a gift pack containing a rosary beads, scapular hymn sheet and prayers.

Sister Angela Coelho, Vice-Postulator for Blessed Jacinta and Francisco The main guest speaker was Sister Angela de Fatima Coelho, who is not only a religious Sister but a medical doctor and has been appointed by the Holy See as Vice-Postulator of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta Marto who were both beatified by the Venerable Servant of God, Pope John Paul II (The Great) on the 13th of May in 2000 in Fatima.

Having introduced herself in perfect English and with a most wonderful personality she tells delegates about “her children” Jacinta and Francisco. “the main source of what we know about Francisco and Jacinta comes from Sister Lucy” she said, “but there were other sources like their family and the parish priest of Fatima Father Manuel Ferreira but it was Sister Lucy who knew them better than everyone” she said.

“There are two doors into the Fatima message one is the “Calls to Fatima” and the other is the “lives and understanding of the little children to whom Our Lady entrusted the message” said Sister Angela. Noting that Pope John Paul II called Fatima not only the “School of Mary” but the “School of Sanctity” to which we are called.”

Later Sister described that what the children did was enough to become saints, that is, they just did what Our Lady had asked them to and that as Saints they are models for us to imitate. “ We are just waiting now for one approved miracle to petition the Holy Father to canonise these two children who will be the youngest saints ever canonised by the Catholic Church, all the other work is done – We have one miracle which we are investigating at the moment, but I am waiting for something more profound and obvious so that there can be no doubts.”

In summing up the lives of Jacinta and Francisco Sister Angela told the delegates that the children of Fatima were just normal kids who worked hard and played, doing their household chores and being obedient to their parents. Jacinta she said was “over-sensitive with games and as such, games could only be played according to the rules of Jacinta.” However after the apparitions of Our Lady, which endured for 13 years in the case of Sister Lucy until 1929 in Tuy, the children accepted that the centre of their lives was no longer themselves but Our Lady and through Her, Jesus.

Quoting again from Pope John Paul II‘s book on the Rosary, Sister Angela told the conference that in praying the Rosary, the Pope called it his daily meeting with Mary. The profound changes that took place in the lives of the children of Fatima came about through the power of the Rosary and the Lady of the Rosary. Francisco was so moved by what the Angel told him to “Console your God” that after this, the young 9 year old would spend two hours in silent adoration before the Blessed Sacrament in his local parish Church.

Francisco, Sister Angela stated “received sufficient graces that he could understand the hierarchy of truths about God- when asked if he loved the Angel, he said he did, but he loved our Lady more and then again he loved Jesus even more than that, and that he experienced Jesus in his heart following that beautiful light that came into his heart from the hands of Our Blessed Lady. Noting that Our Lady had asked the children is they would undertake to suffer in reparation to God for the terrible sins of humanity and to make sacrifices for the conversion of sinners, especially after the vision of hell and with it the Devil and souls who had died in the state of mortal sin “The children responded with an immediate yes” said Sister Angela “because Jesus offers His Cross to his friends” What followed saw the three children arrested and placed in jail for 3 days of mental torture having being told they would be burned alive in a big fire.

The children suffered much abuse afterwards by unbelieving crowds of people who came day and night looking for them. But they knew what was going on Sister Angela and offered it up. Eventually Francisco died at home surrounded by his family but assured as was Jacinta that Our Lady would come for them and bring them to heaven.

Jacinta no longer over sensitive, but now offering to undertake even more sufferings especially for the Holy Father, whom she had seen alone in his chapel with his hands on his face and he was crying, later she saw him kneeling in front of a statue of Mary praying and finally as all three children saw “the Bishop in White” who was killed by soldiers.

Jacinta suffered and died alone in Lisbon in an isolation ward of a hospital offering up her sufferings right until the last minute when Our Lady fulfilled Her promise and came for her and brought her straight to heaven Sister Angela told a tearful conference who were deeply moved by the inside story of the love and dedication of the little seers of Fatima.

Sister Lucia dos Santos at the Carmel Monastery in Coimbra “Sister Lucy had her share of sufferings also” Sister Angela told the conference, who in place of Doctor Branka Paul, who was Sisters Lucy’s personal Doctor for the last 15 years of her life and who could not attend the conference due to the fact that her own mother was dying in hospital, gave her message. “She was told by the bishop of Fatima that she would have to leave home, take a new name, go to another country and never tell anyone who she was, and in addition to that, never to write directly to her family but only through a designated person- This type of suffering was very hard and Lucy didn’t want to do it, she cried day and night at the thought, and promised to disobey the bishop, however Sister continued, Lucy ran back to the Cova and cried, telling Our Lady that she would disobey the bishop- When Our Lady came, and placing Her hand on Lucy’s shoulder, reminded Lucy of her promise to make sacrifices for the conversation of sinners, Lucy did what the Bishop had requested.

Finally Sister Angela referred to the apparition of the Blessed Trinity and Our Lady in Tuy in Spain in and the request of Our Lady for a new devotion that God wanted for the world and that was devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Part of this devotion is to go to Mass on the first five Saturday’s of the month, sacramental confession, recite the holy Rosary, while meditating on its mysteries for at least 15 minutes and to receive holy communion that is to be offered up in reparation for all the blasphemies, sacrileges and outrages by which the Immaculate Heart of Mary is offended. This Sister Lucy of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart of Mary did until the day Our Lady and Jacinta and Francisco came for her on the 13th of February 2005 at the age of 97.

The Irish bishops have asked for a “Year of Renewal” for Ireland to include Adoration, Confession, prayer and Reparation, it is a pity that they did not recommend the book and DVD “Calls to Fatima” as a personal companion to that year of renewal because this book encompasses all that they ask in a most eminent way.

The conference concluded with benediction and holy mass and in keeping with that beautiful Fatima tradition delegates waved their white handkerchiefs at the departing statue of Our Lady of Fatima which was brought to Cork by devotees from the diocese of Kerry. Many delegates asked when the next conference might be, and early indications are that it will be held in Dublin in May of 2011.

Message of Fatima in great detail:book “Calls” & film “The Call to Fatima”

book written by Sister Lucia of Fatima

Message of Fatima in great detail: book  “Calls from the Message of Fatima” written by Sister Lucia and the film documentary based on this book titled “The Call to Fatima”

Book of supernatural revelations written in simple style entirely by Sister Lucia, the last visionary of Fatima apparitions.

There are many people who dreamed of having a face to face meeting with Sister Lucia. However such people will find in this book the reply to the deepest questions they would like to put to her.

“Calls from the Message of Fatima” is a great tool for Evangelisation.  It is Sr Lucia’s spiritual testament. The book is inspired by the Word of God: authentic, profound, universal, gives very good point to the three Christian realities: Purgatory, Hell and Heaven.

The entire message of Fatima is a great call to holiness for the Church of our time.

Described by Cardinal Ratzinger as “the most important book for Catholics for XXI century.”

Book “Calls from the Message of Fatima” is a roadmap for young and old, for those who found God or are still seeking. It should be in every Catholic home.

Full with beautiful quotes of Sister Lucia, Bible references and inspirations. Written by the soul who was promised Heaven.

As a bonus the two film documentaries “The Call to Fatima” are inside the book available in 11 languages, including English, Spanish, Russian and Chinese languages. “The Call to Fatima” is award-winning film, based entirely on Sister Lucia’s books and offers great understanding into the Message of Fatima chapter by chapter. Both come with the approval of the Vatican and The Fatima Shrine.

EVANGELISATION

WHAT IS EVANGELISATION?

the Call to Fatima evangelisationEvangelisation means bringing  the Good News of Jesus into every human situation. Evangelisation leads to conversion. Evangelization is not an optional add-on. It is at the very heart of what it means to be Catholic followers of the Lord.

He commanded them: “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.” Mk 15:15-16

Pope John Paul II suggested:” The New Evangelisation should be carried out new in zeal, new in method and new in expression.”

We all  can and should  evangelise. It helps us to grow as a Christians, as well as grow our communities. Evangelisation helps to bring back the lost souls back to God, bringing HOPE, FAITH and LOVE into their lives.

Jesus was the first and greatest evangeliser. He came to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God.  If we want to follow in the footsteps of Christ, then we must become evangelisers too.

HOW DO WE EVANGELISE?

We can evangelise by listening. When we listen, we enter into a person’s heart, mind and soul. We see their search for meaning, we catch a glimpse of their struggle or their pain.

We can share our faith. We can tell others how the Holy Spirit has worked in our lives. We can also share our faith through actions that demonstrate the ways in which we try to live authentically the Gospel Message.

We can evangelise by extending an invitation. It might be an invitation to come to Mass, to come back to Sacraments of the Church or to some other Catholic devotion, to talk with a priest or spiritual advisor, to read a book, to listen to a lecture, to asist in some ministry, to pray together or to attend a parish social event.

Evangise praying. Pope John Paul II tells us “There must be unceasing prayer to nourish the desire to carry Christ to all men and women.” Pope John Paul II also adds, “For the disciple of Christ the duty to evangelise is an obligation of love.”

Let’s become the true disciples of Christ! Evangelisation today is needed more than ever!


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/
