Were you able to catch some of the Holy Father’s visit to Fatima to celebrate 100 years since the visions of our Blessed Mother to the three shepherd children and to canonize two of those children, Sts. Francisco and Jacinta Marto? To say the least, all of the events were amazing! In the course of five months (May 13-October 13) in 1917, Mary appeared to the children six times and central to Our Lady’s message was the power of the rosary.
In a holy hour recently I was inspired by Mary to invite all parishioners of IHM, a parish dedicated to her Immaculate Heart, to pray the Holy Rosary everyday, from May to October. In the fifth apparition of Our Lady, she spoke: “you continue to say the Rosary every day. I, in the last month will make the miracle that all will believe.” Then with a sadder appearance she told them: “Pray, pray a lot and offer sacrifices for the sinners. You know that many souls go the hell because there is none who pray for them.” So please my friends, let’s dedicate ourselves to this most important devotion, the Holy Rosary.
