Fatima Message

Our Lady of Fatima Gave Us 3 Tasks

TO BRING PEACE TO OUR WORLD:

1.  Be sorry for what we've done wrong; put God first in our lives.
2.  Pray the Rosary each day for peace.
3.  Make sacrifices for sinners so they will know and love God.

 

O Mary, our hope and our joy, help us to pray with you for peace in the world. Unite all children with your Immaculate Heart. Make us strong in praying for those who have no one to pray for them. Keep us always close to the Sacred Heart of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
