Praying for the world on the 100th anniversary of the "Miracle of the Sun."
One of the central messages that Our Lady of Fatima communicated to the three shepherd children was very simple: pray for the world. The Virgin Mary reiterated this theme during her August apparition when she said, “Pray, pray very much and make sacrifices for sinners.”
When the world is in turmoil, prayer is always the answer. It is what Our Lady prescribed in the midst of World War I, and the same message rings true today.
Prayer is a hidden treasure that has the potential to change everything and is the only way to bring about lasting peace on this earth. So on this 100th anniversary of the “Miracle of the Sun,” let us join together in prayer, responding to Our Lady’s call to pray for the world and the conversion of hearts.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for our dear country. Our Lady of Fatima, sanctify our clergy. Our Lady of Fatima, make our Catholics more fervent. Our Lady of Fatima, guide and inspire those who govern us.
