Today is the Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima. It was on this day the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to 3 shepherd children – Lucia dos Santos, and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto in Fatima, Portugal. During these apparitions, which continued for the next 6 months, always on the 13th, the children prayed the rosary with Mary.
Apocalyptic visions and prophecies of World War I, World War II, Hell, persecutions of 20th century Christians, and the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II were shared with the children during this time.
Jacinta and Francisco died during the 1919 Pandemic as young children. Lucia became a cloistered Carmelite sister receiving revelations till her death at 97 in 2005.
I raise this as those suffering with Corona Virus may wish to pray to Jacinta and Francisco for assistance.
We pray that like Jacinta and Marco, we may have the courage to open our hearts to you and welcome you into our lives, we ask this through the intercession of your blessed Mother. Lord, I thank you for bringing me to another day.
