Day 2: Power of the Rosary
During every apparition, Our Lady of Fatima reminded the children to pray the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war. Our Lady told Lucia that Francisco would have to pray many many Rosaries to secure Heaven. This remains a reminder to all Catholics that we must be active and not passive in our devotion to the Holy Rosary.
“Reflecting upon the pressing need to respond to the grace of a new evangelization, we see how timely the apparitions and message of Our Lady of Fatima remain. At Fatima, the Mother of God, our Mother, provides for us the means to go faithfully to her Divine Son and to seek from Him the wisdom and strength to bring His saving grace to a profoundly troubled world.”
-Cardinal Raymond Burke
Let us petition Our Lady of Fatima to hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners and for peace in the world and in our families.
Most Holy Virgin, you appeared at Fatima and revealed, to the three little shepherds, the treasures of graces hidden in the reciting of the Rosary.
Inspire our hearts with a sincere love of this devotion, so that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption, we may gather its fruits and obtain the conversion of sinners, and the conversion of non-believers throughout the world.
O Holy Mary, I also ask for the favor that I now so earnestly seek…
(Share your request…)
O Mary, may that which I ask in this novena, be for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of all people. Amen.
Say: Our Father… (x3), Hail Mary… (x3) and Glory Be… (x3)
Our Lady of Fatima,
Pray for us!
