Message of Fatima Our Hope © World
Apostolate of Fátima

WWI claimed over 40 million lives; Pope
Benedict the XV appealed to the Blessed Mother
to end the War. Within 8 days, Our Blessed
Mother personally appeared
to three poor
shepherds Francisco, Jacinta and Lucia aged 8, 6
and 9 years old.
One year prior, God prepared them by
sending them a celestial messenger, the
Angel of Peace, Catechist of Fatima
. This
Angel taught them prayers, the sense of
reverence before God's presence, the value of
time: make good use of it, offering of one's
life, the Sanctification of our daily duties, the
supernatural value of suffering and its fruit i.e.
peace. Finally, the Angel focused on the most
profound esteem
for the Eucharist, how to
make Reparation to the Most Holy Trinity
through the Eucharist and Christ's real
presence in the Eucharist and the fruit of
reparation i.e. the conversion of poor sinners.
Based on this, we have a program
called Children-of-the-Eucharist One
World Praying for Peace and Life.

4. The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the 3 children in
1917. She opened her immaculate heart and through
this window, she showed them, the mystery of the
Most Blessed Trinity
, by giving them the knowledge of
God and of oneself. She also asked to pray the Rosary
She taught them true devotion to know and
love her, a love of predilection which is the providence,
omnipotence and omniscience of God. She showed
them the sure way to God and taught them the Sacrifice
prayer and the
Decade prayer.

Then, she revealed the Secret of Fatima: 1)
the vision of hell, where the souls of poor sinners go.
2) She spoke on atheism which opposes God's
kingdom. She foretold future events and revealed
miraculous signs to prove the truth of God's
predictions. 3) The struggle between good and evil
and the liberating effects of penance. In the
Mystery of evil, she showed the way to triumph over
evil, the need of God's grace to overcome all obstacles
and the need for prayer and penance in a well
balanced life.
6. Later, she worked the miracle of Fatima that all
might believe, confirming God's seal; The Holy
Family was seen showing that the message is
addressed to families since God is a family. Besides
other scenes, the Divine Mercy and Our Lady of
Mt. Carmel
were seen. In our Statutes, we are
authorized to further the devotion to the Divine
Mercy of God, according to the teachings of the

7. Our Lady of Fatima announced an intervention of God in history through:-
1. The Great promise of the Heart of Mary where
she stays with us through the First Saturday's
reparation by promising the grace of final
perseverance and assuring world peace and unity
for the Universal Church. On July 13, 1917, when
Our Lady appeared to the three children, she said,
“You saw hell, where the souls of poor sinners go.
To save them, God wishes to establish devotion to
my Immaculate Heart in the world. If they do what I
shall tell you, many souls will be saved and there
will be peace”. ….Eight years later, as promised,
she appeared with the Child Jesus who spoke first:
“Have compassion on the heart of your most holy
mother, which is covered with thorns with which
ungrateful men pierce at every moment, while there
is no one to remove them with an act of reparation”.

8. Our Lady then said: “My daughter, look at
My Heart surrounded with thorns with which
ungrateful men pierce it at every moment by
their blasphemies and ingratitude. You, at
least, try to console Me, and say that I promise
to assist at the hour of death with all the graces
necessary for salvation, all those who, on the
First Saturday of Five consecutive months go
to (1) Confession and receive Holy
Communion, (2) recite Five Decades of the

Rosary and (3) keep me company for a quarter of an hour while meditating on mysteries of the Rosary, (4) with the
intention of making reparation to Me”.
Why are there FIVE First Saturdays and not seven or nine?..Our Lord…answered: “…. There are Five kinds of
offences and blasphemies…; (1)…against the Immaculate Conception; (2)… against Her Virginity; (3)… against
Her Divine Maternity; (4)… those who openly seek to Foster in the Hearts of children indifference or even hatred
for this Immaculate Mother; (5) The offences of those who directly outrage Her in Holy Images.
Each of the Five
Saturdays corresponds to a specific offence. In this way, we can help remove the thorns from Our Lady's Heart.
(9) 2. The conversion of the world: The Blessed
Virgin Mary revealed that God has entrusted the
fate of the world to Her Immaculate Heart. We
have accomplished and MUST REPEAT
REGULARILY the Consecration to God
through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
have seen its effects leading to a conversion of
Russia and those countries
in most need of
God's mercy. This consecration has saved us
from many evils. We have to further the
conversion of the world for the triumph of the
Immaculate Heart of Mary and the era of
peace which is promised.

10. .Last May, Pope Benedict XVI expressed the hope that
the Message of Fatima will be “increasingly accepted,
understood and lived in every community.”
…even by
those who think that, because the Fatima Apparitions are a
private revelation, the message is purely something
devotional of a lesser importance; classified for them as a
mere Marian devotion. But this is a terrible mistake!
Although public revelation (the Bible, the Tradition of the
Church and its Magisterium) is the only needed source of
Revelation for the salvation of souls; it is also true that at
different moments of history, the Good Lord of history, has
chosen messengers to actualize the measures of faith and morals needed to succeed over the powers of evil.
11. The Holy Father confirmed to his flock that the Message of Fatima is
NOT a mere devotion intended for devotees but much more than that, an
urgent call from heaven to change the lifestyles, mores and folkways of
corrupted societies by repenting, doing penance, converting to Jesus
Christ and abandoning “the evil spirit and his worldly deeds” as we
promised in our baptism. This message is an echo of the Gospel
actualized for our times of confusion and uncertainty.

12. The message contains the essence or fundamentals of
the New Evangelization: Conversion, Prayer, Penance,
Reparation, Eucharistic Adoration, Eucharistic Reparation
and Entrustment or Consecration to God through the
Immaculate Heart of Mary. There is not much time left to
spread the Message before it is too late! Today is more
urgent than never before! In March 1939, Our Lord told Sr.
Lucia, “The time is coming when the rigor of my justice
will punish the crimes of diverse nations.” The
eschatological tension we live today is the sign from
Heaven of the urgency of this message to be known,
understood in a greater scope and lived, lived, lived!
If you are convinced, we can come to/coordinate your Parish/
Institution to make presentations on…
Eucharistic Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays in Parishes,
Children-of-the-Eucharist One World Praying for Peace and Life,
Divine Mercy,
The Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel,
Consecration to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Etc.
