Fatima Prayer

O My Jesus,
forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of Hell
and lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those who are in
most need of Thy mercy.
Amen.


In 1916, in Portugal, The Angel of Peace appeared to three children, Lucia Santos, Francisco Marto and his sister Jacinta, in preparation for the six times that The Blessed Virgin Mary would appear to them in 1917. The children were given a message to establish devotion throughout the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love You.“

A prayer taught to the children by the Angel, 1916

 

“I want you to continue saying the Rosary every day. And after each one of the mysteries, my children, I want you to pray in this way: O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of hell. Take all souls to heaven, especially those who are most in need.”

“…Jesus wishes you to make me known and loved on earth. He wishes also for you to establish devotion in the world to my Immaculate Heart.”

Spoken to the children by The Lady of the Rosary, The Blessed Virgin Mary, June 13, 1917

Prayer for the Spirit of Mary
by St. Louis de Montfort

My powerful Queen,
you are all mine through your mercy,
and I am all yours.
Take away from me all that may displease God
and cultivate in me all that is pleasing to Him.
May the light of your faith
dispel the darkness of my mind,
your deep humility
take the place of my pride,
your continual sight of God
fill my memory with His presence.
May the first of the love of your heart
inflame the lukewarmness of my own heart.
May your virtues take the place of my sins.
May your merits be my enrichment
and make up for all
that is wanting in me before God.
My beloved Mother,
grant that I may have no other spirit but your spirit,
to know Jesus Christ and his Divine will
and to praise and glorify the Lord,
that I may love God with burning love like yours.

Amen.
