Novena to Our Lady of Fatima

About Our Lady of Fatima

Our Lady of Fatima is a title of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In 1917, Our Lady appeared to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal. They were Lucia Santos, Blessed Jacinta Marto and Blessed Francisco Marto. Our Lady appeared to the children seven times and performed a miracle making the sun dance in the sky, which thousands of people witnessed.

She told the children to say the Rosary every day to bring peace to the world and the end of war. This is why Our Lady of Fatima is also called Our Lady of the Rosary. She also requested us to pray the following prayer at the end of each mystery or decade of the Rosary: “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy. Amen.”

Later, Our Lady entrusted the children with three secrets. The first was a vision of Hell, and the second was a prophecy of the end of World War I and the beginning of World War II, and the need for Russia to convert to Christianity. The third secret is about the Holy Father being killed with bullets and arrows by soldiers at the foot of a cross, and many other people dying as well.

This Marian Apparition was approved by the Holy See in 1930. Around four million pilgrims visit the Basilica at Fatima every year. The Feast of Our Lady of Fatima is May 13th.

  2. I pray for the blessings of children to our children Nadine and Ken, Asa and Claudine, Kamarr and Tifanny.

  3. I pray that the previous interview I had with Saudi ARAMCO was a success. It is going into three weeks & I have not had any news from this company. I also applied for a job with another company and got a rejection this week. That was a very painful letter to read. I have been out of a job well in excess of two years, with every day just waiting and checking emails. I am stuck in a dead end job trying to make ends meet, and it is a job I dislike, but at the end I have no choice. I do have a definite plan with how I want to go forward, but the options are just not there. I do feel disgruntled somewhat that everyone else around me is progressing, and even though I have good health and my own home, I feel I can do better. I believe in God, and no matter what my situation is, I will always give god the glory. I Believe in Jesus Christ his only son who died so that our sins may be forgiven.

  14. Hello,

    I am currently using the Youtube channel for St Therese and I am in need of help. My marriage has been taken from me. Three years, almost, since I last saw my wife and I am strong in Faith but without hope. I have no hope that anyone/anything will change this situation. I am depressed, empty, lost, and afraid. I need someone else to pray for us as I don’t believe that I am heard or, if it is heard, I don’t believe that my prayers matter or will help. Yet, I continue to pray in both formal and informal manners. I don’t hear God’s voice. I used to but He doesn’t speak to me anymore. My marriage has been bad for years and I tried. I did make mistakes in it and was not a perfect spouse but I work at it as best I could. It is not all her fault. We made mistakes and others helped tear us down and apart.
    And, as a therapist, I am tasked to serve by helping others save and protect their families and their joined lives yet no one helps me to have the same thing.

    My son suffers, I suffer, I know nothing about my wife as she does not communicate with me and neither does her family. They never really were supportive even though I am the only man who, in 15 years, was willing to marry her and take her son as my own and care for him. Her departure from our family has done a major amount of damage to him. He has regressed back to being a teenager and is failing out of college over and over again. Right now, he has done nothing about registering for the upcoming semester. I am going to pay for his education just as I am the one paying for his needs as his mother left and his grandmother and uncles have no place for him. No one helps or offers even minimal family contact. I have no one but my siblings to help. I can’t talk to him. His mothers family manipulate him to poison our relationship, I suspect. I fail him in that I am not healing. We argue and he is acting like a lazy, self-obsessed, secretive, pissy teenager. He drinks, he is using a single mother inappropriately. I did not teach him that. I always treated his mother with the best levels of dignity, respect, and love which I was capable of expressing. I’m lost. How did St Joseph deal?

    For myself, I don’t really date. I’ve tried but been abandoned enough that I trust no one. I just want my wife and our family. I pray daily and almost constantly but it is starting to feel very hollow and pointless. I am without hope for intervention. I cannot fix this. Only God can. I’m out of hope for help. I’ve tried and tried for years. And I find that, other than in my service, both myself and my life are without value. I don’t see reasons to continue trying to do for myself and I only work now. My therapist has given up as the solutions we find don’t do any good. Also, please pray for her (Maria Susana Acosta, LPC) and her family as their mother is leaving this world and it is a painful passing. Also, Susana is struggling with her own health needs.

    As far as options and ideas, I try to use the ones I share with my clientele that God sends into my care but it doesn’t help me. I won’t drink, I won’t use drugs, (No, I don’t recommend those to clientele) and I just don’t find the ‘normal’ distractions either useful or pleasant. I am losing friends because I won’t socialize. My social world was, primarily, my family and now I don’t have that. I really don’t care about my health. I keep going solely because, once I am awake, I have my community to serve. If I do not, who will? Be not afraid, he told me, for I go before you always. Yet, I am alone. Whom shall I send was asked and I stood and answered the call. I’ve only asked to be able to have a decent income and a family and wife with whom to share the joys and sorrows of this adventure which is life and yet God has given me no one who will stand beside me. I am alone. Again.

    Who will help? How do I have hope? Will you please pray for us? I know that I am being selfish and am asking for Me, Me, Me… but… I need my family. Thank you.

    • Surrender it all!! Surrender it all!!! Get on with your life. Do not question one bit of Hus will. He’s waiting for you to do this. He wants you to trust. Praise God in everything. Even the worst situations. He has a plan. It’s a test of your trust. Stop doing your will, and get on doing what’s right. Tell your son you are there for him and love him no matter what. Start saying a prayer together, everyday. When 2 or more pray, I am in your midst. He’s with you every step you take. He loves you beyond what you can imagine, as if you are the only one in His world. I’m praying for you!!!

  15. Please pray for Bill J.- that he will admit his alcohol addiction and work toward recovery. Pray for his wife, who has put him through recovery, and been there for him. Pray for his daughters, in-laws, and friends, who are torn up by his actions and his denial of the problem.
    Thank you.

  22. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR GRANTING MY NOVENA REQUEST DEAREST GOD, THROUGH OUR LADY OF FATIMA AND THROUGH SAINTS FRANCISCO AND JACINTA!

    Thank you for allowing our daughter to hurdle all her exams/ subjects and not get kicked out of her course. She needed a very high grade to pass and it was granted. She is very hardworking yet her college course is very hard. PRAISE THE MOST HIGH TRIUNE GOD! We were asking for a miracle and it was granted. THANK YOU MOTHER MARY, OUR LADY OF FATIMA AND SAINTS FRANCISCO AND JACINTA!!!
    May we please most humbly ask for another miracle, Our Lady, Mother Mary…that my husband who has just been diagnosed to have 90 percent blindness in his right eye be granted complete cure. I am a physician yet God is the only one who really cures. My husband has diabetes and hypertension and he is starting to have kidney problems. His laboratory exams are not normal. It is very depressing for him. Our family is most sad. We ask for a miracle. God performs miracles. May GOD’s will be done. By May 26, the next novena will start and may our family humbly and urgently ask the help of your readers, John Paul and Annie, by way of prayers. ( I think May 26 is the start of the Pentecost novena?) May GOD grant light back into my husband’s eyes and may his health steadily become better. Any O also pray for health and financial stability in our family. If I may please say, we are also praying for Bishop Fulton Sheen’ s intercession…if God grants a miracle through him also, may it be a cause for his canonization. Miracles are possible, just like the grace given to our daughter. Our family prays for all the readers/subscribers of http://www.praymorenovenas.com. BLESSED BE GOD, THROUGH MOTHER MARY! WE LOVE YOU GOD!
