Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima

Dearest Mother, Queen of the Holy Rosary, who came to Fatima to reveal to all mankind the Divine plan for true Christian peace, of prayer, penance, and consecration, grant an abundance of grace, strength, and guidance to the members of Thy Fatima Crusade, here present and throughout the world. Inspire us to great zeal, oh great Mediatrix of All Graces, that we may be effective instruments in spreading devotion to Thy Rosary; that we may be faithful in wearing Thy scapular; that we may inspire our brothers in Christ to a life of sacrifice, penance, and modesty, and finally, that we may help to bring about that wonderful day when all men, through consecration to Thy Immaculate Heart, shall be one in Christ. Amen.

Our Lady of Fatima Hymn to Our Lady of Fatima

Dear Lady of Fatima,
We come on bended knee,
To beg Your intercession,
For peace and unity.

Dear Mary, won't You show us,
The right and shining way,
We pledge our love and offer You,
A Rosary each day.

You promised at Fatima,
Each time that You appeared,
To help us if we pray to You,
To banish war and fear.

Dear Lady, on First Saturdays,
We ask Your guiding hand,
For grace and guidance here on earth,
And protection for our land.

Today we will be going on a pilgrimage to the World Apostolate of Fatima's Blue Army Shrine, to join in celebrating our Lady's feast day. I will be praying for all of you.

It really was Kathy. The Blue Army Shrine was packed yesterday with pilgrims and priests.

Oh I want to visit that shrine someday as I am a member of the Blue Army!

Hugs, Heather

That is such a beautiful hymn. Of course it is also the anniversary of the day JPII was shot. 'The hand that guided the bullet'. Praise God for Our Lady of Fatima!

Well when you move, you have to make a pilgrimage.

Yes it was Squelly.
