    Greetings in Christ!

    As you read these words spoken by Our Lady to the children of Fatima, I hope you will prayerfully consider joining me on this pilgrimage marking the centennial of the apparitions in Fatima.

    Fr. Nathan Malavolti, TOR
    First apparition of Our Lady

    "I came to ask you to come here for six consecutive months, on the thirteenth day, at this same hour. I will tell you later who I am and what I want. And I shall return here again a seventh time."

    Second apparition of Our Lady

    "I wish you to come here the 13th of next month; that you say the Rosary every day, and that you learn to read. In succeding months I will tell you what else I want."

    Third apparition of Our Lady

    "When you recite the Rosary, say at the end of each decade: Oh My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Your Mercy."

    Fourth apparition of Our Lady

    "I Want you to continue to go to the Cova da Iria on the 13th, that you continue to say the Rosary every day. I, in the last month will make the miracle that all will believe."

    Fifth apparition of Our Lady

    "I Want you to come here on October 13 and that you continue to recite the Rosary to obtain the end of the war. In October the Lord, the sorrowful Lady, the Lady of Mt. Carmel, and St Joseph with the child Jesus, will also come to bless the world."

    Sixth apparition of Our Lady

    "I am the Lady of the Rosary, I desire here a chapel in my honor to be built, that people continue to recite the Rosary every day…"

    Pope Francis To Be There
