Day 4: Second Secret of Fatima
Our Lady of Fatima asked for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart for the conversion of Russia and to avoid another war. The mentality of materialism, atheism, and secularism (which is far more diabolical because of its lack of concern for whether there is a God) was especially pervasive in Russia. Because Russia did not convert, she spread her errors throughout the world and we must actively battle the effects. On March 25, 2022, Pope Francis consecrated Ukraine and Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Cardinals, bishops and priests around the world led the same consecration and held special Holy Masses. Now, Pope Francis and Vatican officials are involved in a “Peace Mission” to end the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. We must continue to pray for an end to all the violence and killings of this horrific war.
“Before the grave situation of the world today, we are, Pope Saint John Paul II reminded us, like the first disciples who, after hearing Saint Peter’s Pentecost discourse, asked him: ‘What must we do?’ Even as the first disciples faced a pagan world which had not even heard of our Lord Jesus Christ, so, too, we face a culture which is forgetful of God and hostile to His Law written upon every human heart.”
-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!
