OUR LADY OF FATIMA
The twentieth century has been the bloodiest and most violent in the history . During Mary’s visits to Fatima, Portugal, in 1917, she foretold not only the terrors of the Russian Revolution and World War II, but also made a third prediction, never released, as it was judged far too terrifying. In her visits she stressed the recitation of the rosary and taking fifteen minutes to meditate on her Immaculate Heart each week. Expressing the feeling that humanity had drifted away from God, she wanted the world to offer up reparations for the disastrous state of the earth. Our Lady of Fatima is an angry and pained mother, demanding that the world come to its senses and honor its Creator. Her rules are strict. This novena is said to honor Mary and to atone for the blasphemies and ingratitude that are heaped upon God and his creations. Coming in the midst of the first World War, her warnings were pointedly political. She predicted the suffering imposed by the Communist states as well as the incredible carnage of the next world war. She strongly commanded all of humanity to pray the rosary, insisting this is the only road to peace.
Novena Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima
Most holy Virgin, who came to Fatima to reveal to the
Three shepherd children the treasures of graces hidden
in the recitation of the rosary, inspire our hearts with
a sincere love of this devotion, so that by meditating
on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in it,
we may gather their fruits and obtain the conversion
of sinners, the conversion of Russia, and

Which we ask of you in this novena,
for the greater glory of God, for your own honor,
and for the good of people. Amen
