Feast of Our Lady of Fatima
Dear Family of Mary!
Our Lady in Medjugorje only referred to her apparition in Fatima once, in this message:
August 25, 1991 “Dear Children! Today also I invite you to prayer, now as never before when my plan has begun to be realized. Satan is strong and wants to sweep away my plans of peace and joy and make you think that my Son is not strong in His decisions. Therefore, I call all of you, dear children, to pray and fast still more firmly. I invite you to self-renunciation for nine days so that, with your help, everything that I desire to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima, may be fulfilled. I call you, dear children, to now grasp the importance of my coming and the seriousness of the situation. I want to save all souls and present them to God. Therefore, let us pray that everything I have begun will be fully realized. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
She connected her plan in Medjugorje to her plan in Fatima. She told us she needed our prayer and renunciation, so that the secrets she began in Fatima might be fulfilled. Those secrets were begun, but not finished, and she was with us now in Medjugorje to continue to work them out in our midst. Clearly those secrets had to do with saving all souls and presenting them to God. Our Lady was sent on a mission in 1917 and that mission was on going. Her presence in Medjugorje was part of that mission.
The next month Our Mother told us a bit more about her mission and our role in it:
September 25, 1991 “Dear children! Today in a special way I invite you all to prayer and renunciation. For now, as never before, satan wants to show the world his shameful face by which he wants to seduce as many people as possible onto the way of death and sin. Therefore, dear children, help my Immaculate Heart to triumph in the sinful world. I beseech all of you to offer prayers and sacrifices for my intentions so I can present them to God for what is most necessary. Forget your desires, dear children, and pray for what God desires, and not for what you desire. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Mother Mary told us that the battle with our enemy, the devil, was intensifying. But she revealed again that it was her mission to crush him. How? Through the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart! Her Triumph is the way God has chosen to defeat the enemy. And that triumph will happen through the prayers of her children, you and me!
The next message Our Lady gave was like a trumpet call. Our Lady called her troops into action:
October 25, 1991 “Dear children! Pray! Pray! Pray!
Sounding the alarm, Our Mother set us into motion, moving forward into the fray, with our weapons in hand, and our hearts set on victory.
These three messages together show us the Father’s plan, now being enacted through Mary, the Mother of Jesus. It is a battle that she leads, a battle in which we, her children, are engaged. I want to quote now, Sr. Lucia, who shared in 1957 what Our Lady had shown her about these days we are in. She describes the spiritual realities with great accuracy and focus. I will close with her words:
“Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last times of the world, but She made me understand this for three reasons. The first reason is because She told me that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Virgin. And a decisive battle is the final battle where one side will be victorious, and the other side will suffer defeat. Also, from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility. The second reason is because She said to my cousins as well as to myself that God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These are the last two remedies, which signify that there will not be others. The third reason is because in the plans of Divine Providence God always, before He is about to punish the world, exhausts all other remedies.
“The two means to save the world are prayer and sacrifice. Look, Father, the Most Holy Virgin, in these last times in which we live, has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Holy Rosary. She has given this efficacy to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all, spiritual, in the private life of each one of us, of our families, of the families of the world, of the religious communities or even of the life of peoples and nations, that cannot be resolved through the prayer of the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve through the recitation of the Holy Rosary. Through the Holy Rosary we will save ourselves. We will sanctify ourselves. We will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls. Finally, devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Mother, consists in considering Her as the seat of mercy, of goodness and of pardon and as the sure door through which we are to enter Heaven.” (Sr. Lucia of Fatima)

Today, all day, let’s pray our Rosaries for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Don’t forget to pray this short but powerful prayer to the Holy Spirit:
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.
V. Send forth Thy Spirit and we shall be created.
R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray. O God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit didst instruct the hearts of thy faithful, grant by the same Spirit that we will be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
