Where it all began

July 13 Rosary at the Shrine

100 years ago, on June 13, 1917, a Second Apparition occurred at Fatima Portugal. During her visit, our Lady announced that Jesus desired to establish devotion to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

On Thursday, July 13, after the 8 a.m. Mass, to pray the Rosary. Two of the secrets of praying the Rosary that Blessed Mother revealed to St Dominic: “All who recite the Rosary are brought closer to Our Lord and Our Lady. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for their intercessors the entire Celestial Court during their life and at the hour of their death.”

First Saturday Devotion ``school of Our Lady``

First Saturdays are entrance into deeper meaning of Fatima – by Fr. Thomas Dufner

Fatima is a wonderful place where we are drawn into the heart of Our Lady and there are made her true children filled with her own life. Through this “school of Our Lady” we enter into the sacramental life, the interior life and the apostolic life, all for the good of the Church. The First Saturdays devotion helps us get there.

The Sacramental Life

The five First Saturdays is about reparation, but it leads us into the sacramental life of the Church, where God pours out Divine power. The sacramental life starts with confession. That’s where we renew the innocence once given us in Baptism. Here we renounce Satan, reject sin and its ability to separate us from God, and demonstrate a desire to be with Christ. Our attitudes are reshaped by the Sacrament of Penance.  Remember, this is a time for us to confess all of our mortal and God wipes them away.  Continue reading….
