~ Pope St. John Paul the Great (Homily at Mass in 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 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.
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.
