As we announced last week, Pope Francis will consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on, and he is having the statue of Our Lady that stands on the site of the apparitions in Fatima shipped to Rome to mark the occasion.
In support of the Holy Father, all members and friends of the World Apostolate of Fatima USA and people throughout the world are invited to participate in a 54-day Rosary Novena, beginning on and ending on .
The first 27 days of the novena will serve as a time to petition Our Lady leading up to the consecration. The following 27 days will be days of thanksgiving for all the blessings given to us through Her intercession.
You can now find the full details of the novena, including links to the prayers, on the home page of www.bluearmy.com.
The apostolate's intention for the novena is:
That Pope Francis' consecration will bring mercy from God the Father for the salvation of souls; grace from God the Son for the conversion of sinners; an increase in practice of the FirstCommunions of Reparation; enlightenment from God the Holy Spirit as we pray for world peace; and an increase in devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as we approach the 2017 Centennial of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima.
