Her Heart is Our Refuge​

Discover Our Lady’s plan for a world in turmoil. She came to show us the way to God, restore our hope and establish peace.

A message of hope and peace in a time of great upheaval.

Man’s rejection of God, if it becomes definitive, leads logically to God’s rejection of man. ​

~ Pope St. John Paul the Great (Homily at Mass in Fatima on May 13, 1982)​

Usher in the Era of Peace

Peace will not be achieved until we use the Law of God as the norm and guide of our steps.

~ Sr. Lucia

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.

We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete.

The World Apostolate of Fatima

“If I could only put into the hearts of all, the fire that is burning within my own heart.”

~ St. Jacinta Marto

Inspired by the message of Our Lady of Fatima, Msgr. Harold V. Colgan and John M. Haffert founded the World Apostolate of Fatima in 1946.

Sr. Lucia, the last surviving Fatima visionary, enlisted John to help her spread Mary’s message of peace and hope throughout the world.

Today we are the Vatican’s official voice proclaiming Our Lady of Fatima’s message.

“Learn the message of Fatima! Live the message of Fatima! Spread the message of Fatima!”

~ Pope Benedict XVI

The Message and Miracle of Fatima

~ Sr. Lucia

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.
