~ St. John Paul II (Homily at Fatima on May 13, 1982)
Our Lady gave us a plan to combat the breakdown of families and societies, to bring people back to the Church, and to usher in an era of peace. The World Apostolate of Fatima equips you to discover that plan, live it, and share it with others.
Inspired by the message of Our Lady of Fatima, Msgr. Harold V. Colgan and John M. Haffert founded the Blue Army of Our Lady, now the World Apostolate of Fatima, in 1947.
Haffert enlisted the help of Sr. Lucia, the last surviving Fatima visionary, to understand Mary’s requests to establish peace in the world and spread the devotion to her Immaculate Heart.
Today we are the Vatican’s official voice in proclaiming the authentic message of Our Lady of Fatima.
“Learn the Message of Fatima! Live the message of Fatima! Spread the message of Fatima!” ~ Pope Benedict XVI
In 1917 the Mother of God appeared to three shepherd children in a small village in Portugal with a plan for bringing hope and peace to a world that was tearing itself apart. Today that message is as relevant as it was 100 years ago.
Help us spread Mary’s beautiful message of peace and hope for mankind. Your generosity furthers the mission of the World Apostolate of Fatima, to help souls learn, live and spread Our Lady of Fatima’s message.
