On October 13, 1917, in Fatima, three children, Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco, and at least 70,000 people gathered for the 6th and final Apparition. Mary asked the children to have a chapel built there in her honor. She announced that she was Our Lady of the Rosary and told them to continue to pray the Rosary. She said people must amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins. Then the miracle occurred; St. Joseph appeared to the left of the sun holding the Child Jesus. St . Joseph and the Child Jesus made the sign of the cross three times over the world. Our Lady stood on the right side of the sun, dressed in her blue and white robes of the Lady of the Rosary. Then Lucia saw Our Lord dressed in red as the Divine Redeemer. Beside him, stood our Lady, dressed in purple robes of Our Lady of Sorrows. Then the Blessed Virgin appeared clothed in her simple brown robes of Mount Carmel. Then everyone saw the sun take on extraordinary color. The sun took on different colors, and danced in the sky. At last the sun went back into orbit and rested in the sky. The miracle was over. In honor of her request, the Legion of Mary is inviting you to join us in the recitation of the Rosary on October 13th after the recitation of the Divine Mercy following the 10:00am mass on Sunday, October 13th at the Grotto of Our Lady of Fatima. We will meet at the Chapel entrance and proceed in recitation of the Rosary, feel free to bring a lawn chair. All are welcome, please join us.
At Fatima our Lady said, “Today more souls go to hell because not enough people pray or make sacrifices for them.” She invites us to “Fast on Wednesdays and Fridays; the best Fast is on bread and water. However, if this is not possible for you, there are other ways, such as from: television, computer games, alcohol, cigarettes, etc. Also, PRAY. Pray to be able to fast. We Fast and Pray to ac-quire mastery over our instincts and freedom of heart for God’s glory. In doing this, we tell God “I need You” and “I can’t do this with-out You”. We ask you to do this as Spiritual support for our success as we go out and complete the census and get acquainted with all neighbors in our parish district. Thank you and God bless you for all your help.
