Dear Friends,

Today we commemorate the event that marked the Portuguese Catholic Church in the second decade of the 20th century: the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima to three humble children in the Cova da Iria.

It was on May 13, 1917 that the Blessed Virgin came to meet us, bringing from Heaven a pressing message, which can be summed up in three words: Conversion, Penance and Prayer. It was the challenge that the Lady brighter than the sun brought to the three little shepherds and, through them, to all humanity.

The world of that time was experiencing a terrible scourge: the First World War. It was necessary to "wake up" to the drama in which we were living, and to walk, as Our Lady wished, the paths of peace. She said: "if men and women are converted, then the world will find peace". The little shepherds did not fail to respond promptly to Our Lady's invitation, not only through prayer, but also through the sacrifices they made for the conversion of sinners.

Let us pray for PEACE in the WORLD!

A huge HUUUUG! Fátima C. Brízio
