The Message of Fatima

Our Lady came to Fatima to bring a message of hope and peace to the world during a time of great upheaval in the world.

The core of her message can be expressed in three simple sentences:

1. Addressing the eternal order, she told us that hell exists and that souls are being lost to it because there is no one to make reparation for their sins.

2. Speaking of the temporal, she said that war is a consequence of sin.

3. The salvation of souls and the attainment of world peace require the conversion of sinners. “People must stop offending God because He is already so much offended.” (Oct. 13, 1917)

Our Lady of Fatima Requests

1. Daily offer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the sacrifices demanded by the duties required of your state in life, as well as whatever hardships and difficulties God permits in your life, in reparation for sin and for the conversion of sinners. In other words, “offer it up.” Sister Lucia considered this the essential everyday response to Fatima.

2. Pray a Rosary daily while meditating on the mysteries, especially for world peace.

3. Consecrate yourself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and wear the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel as a sign of your consecration. (Read more about Marian Consecration)

4. Practice the Communion of Reparation on the first Saturday of the month, popularly known as the First Saturday devotion.

The devotional requests of Our Lady of Fatima provide the precise weapons of spiritual warfare so desperately needed today – the peace plan from heaven. These requests constitute the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which God wanted established worldwide, and was the mission given to Lucia.
