The Fatima Prayer O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy.
Hail Mary , full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God , pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
The Fatima message emphasizes central truths and devotions of the Catholic faith: The Blessed Trinity, the Eucharist, penance, the Rosary and sacrifices for the conversion of sinners.
Wednesday is the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima in the Catholic Church to honor three visions of the Virgin Mary that are said to have appeared to three children in Fatima , Portugal. During the final apparition, the woman revealed who she was to the children.
The three secrets of Fatima are: A vision of the souls in Hell. Prediction of the end of WWI and a prediction of the beginning of WWII as well as a request to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. A vision of the Pope, along with other bishops, priests, religious and lay people, being killed by soldiers.
Theological Prayer In the Spring of 1916, the Angel of Peace taught the three children of Fátima this prayer , making them repeat it three times. My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You. Meu Deus!
The basic forms of prayer are adoration , contrition , thanksgiving and supplication, abbreviated as A.C.T.S. The Liturgy of the Hours, the seven canonical hours of the Catholic Church prayed at fixed prayer times, is recited daily by clergy, religious and devout believers.
Hail Mary , Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary , Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of death. Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
Such prayers or acts may be accompanied by specific requests for Mary’s intercession with God. Devotion to the Virgin Mary does not, however, amount to worship – which is reserved for God.
To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pope Pius XI.
In them, she said Mary gave the children three secrets , or prophecies, two of which she revealed at that time. The first secret was a vision of hell that Mary showed to the children, full of lakes of fire with screaming souls in torment.
Fatima is one of the most important catholic shrines in the world dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Fatima’s fame is due to the Apparitions of Our Lady of the Rosary that appeared to three shepherd children; Lucia dos Santos and her two younger cousins, Francisco and Jacinta.
As Fatima is seen as pure and without sin, The Hand of Fatima is considered a symbol of protection, power and strength. The Hand of Fatima symbolises the Five Pillars of Islam: Faith, Prayer, Pilgrimage, Fasting and Charity. Muslim communities also refer to the hamsa as ‘Khamsa’, the Arabic word for five.
Rosaries are a very special symbol and prayer guide for Catholics, Anglicans and Lutherans. They are not meant to be worn around the neck ; they are meant to be held and prayed with. If wearing the rosary around the neck , it should be worn under clothes, so no one can see.
On Sept. 13, 30,000 people were present when dos Santos said the Virgin Mary told her, “In October I will perform a miracle so that all may believe.” On that day, Oct. 13, 1917, the crowd of believers had swelled to 70,000.
