Today, on 22nd March, we are celebrating Sister Lucia’s birhday, which she kindly shared with her private physician Doctor Branca Paul. We say thanks for the life of Sister Lucia with this special prayer for her Beatification:Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore you profoundly and I thank you for the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Fatima that revealed to the world the riches of her Immaculate Heart. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I implore You, if it should be for Your greater glory and the good of our souls, to glorify Sr. Lucia, one of the Shepherds of Fatima, by granting us the grace which we implore through her intercession. Amen.

The most holy Virgin rested her hand on her shoulder, and as she did so, she showed to Sr Lucia a heart encircled by thorns, which she was holding in her other hand.
At the same time, the Child said: “Have compassion on the Heart of your most holy Mother, covered with thorns, with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment, and there is no one to make an act of reparation to remove them.”
Then the most holy Virgin said: “Look, my daughter, at my Heart, surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce me every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console me. I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those, who on the first Saturday of five consecutive months shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary and keep me company for 15 minutes while meditating on the 15 mysteries of the Rosary (now 20 mysteries), with the intention of making reparation to me.”
