A beautiful and unique sacramental honoring Our Lady of Fatima.
Fatima is a small village in Portugal where the blessed Virgin Mary appeared six times to three shepherd children. Our Lady appeared to Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta between May 13 and October 13, 1917.
"Where are you from?" Lucia asked.
I come from heaven. Our Lady answered.
The Lady wore a pure white mantle, edged with gold and which fell to her feet. In her hands the beads of a rosary shone like stars, with its crucifix the most radiant gem of all. Still, Lucia felt no fear. The Lady's presence produced in her only gladness and confident joy.
"And what do you want of me?" Lucia asked.
The Blessed Mother answered "I want you to return here on the thirteenth of each month for the next six months, and at the very same hour. Later I shall tell you who I am, and what it is that I most desire. And I shall return here yet a seventh time."
Appearing to the children, Our Lady told them that She had been sent by God with a message for every man, woman and child living in our century. Coming at a time when civilization was torn apart by war and bloody violence, She promised that Heaven would grant peace to all the world if Her requests for prayer, repration and consecration were heard and obeyed.
"If My requests are granted ... there will be peace"
In all Her appearances at Fatima, the Blessed Mother repeatedly emphasized the necessity of praying the Rosary daily, of wearing the Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel and of performing acts of reparation and sacrifice.
At Fatima, Pope John Paul II said on May 13; " the message of Fatima is more relevant and more urgent " then when Our Lady first appeared. The message is an anguished appeal of our Heavenly Mother, Who sees us in great danger and Who comes to offer Her help and advice. Her message is also a prophesy, a clear indication of what was about to transpire in the 20th century, and what is still going to happen infallibly in the near future, depending on our response to Her requests.
