Day 5: Devotion to the Immaculate Heart
At Fatima, Our Lady promised salvation to whoever embraces the devotion to the Immaculate Heart. She is our defense against the influences of our godless culture. When Lucia asked Our Lady if she would stay on earth alone while Jacinta and Francisco were taken to Heaven, Our Lady lovingly replied: “No, my daughter. Are you suffering a great deal? Don’t lose heart. I will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.”
“…The recovery of peace will be a gift from Heaven, but it is not, properly speaking, the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Her victory is of another order, supernatural, and then temporal by addition. It will first be the victory of the Faith, which will put an end to the time of apostasy, and the great shortcomings of the Church’s pastors.”
-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!
