Our Lady of Fatima

MAY 13th is the feast of OUR LADY OF FATIMA.

On this day in 1917, Mary, the Mother of God appeared to three Portuguese children and asked them to meet her on the 13th of every month. Their meetings were disapproved of by the then communist government and the children were kidnapped by the mayor to prevent them meeting in August. Our Lady promised a miraculous sign involving the sun on October 13th which was witnessed by over 70,000 people and confirmed by secular sources.

Our Lady taught the children this prayer which many include in the Rosary: O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy.  Amen.
