100th Fatima Anniversary Special Indulgence

         Our Lady of Fatima www.thecalltofatima.com100th Fatima Anniversary Special Indulgence

For the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal, Pope Francis has decided to grant a plenary indulgence opportunity throughout the entire anniversary year, which began Nov. 27, 2016, and will end Nov. 26, 2017.

 There are three ways of obtaining the indulgence. To obtain the plenary indulgence, the faithful must also fulfil the ordinary conditions : go to Confession and Communion, be interiorly detached from sin, and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.

  1. Make a pilgrimage to the shrine

The first way is for “the faithful to make a pilgrimage to the Fatima Shrine in Portugal and participate in a celebration or prayer dedicated to the Virgin.” In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed, and invoke the Mother of God.

  1. Pray before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima

The second way applies to “the pious faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October (2017), and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honour of the Virgin Mary.”

Regarding this second way, the rector of the Fatima Shrine stated that the visit to the statue of the Virgin, “does not necessarily have to be only at Fatima or exclusively in Portugal,” but can be done anywhere in the world.

Those seeking an indulgence must also pray an Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima pray for us.

  1. The elderly and infirm

The third way to obtain a plenary indulgence applies to people who, because of age, illness or other serious cause, are unable to get around.

These individuals can pray in front of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima and must spiritually unite themselves to the jubilee celebrations on the days of the apparitions, the 13th of each month, between May and October 2017.

They also must “offer to merciful God with confidence, through Mary, their prayers and sufferings or the sacrifices they make in their own lives.”

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.
