ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
(with ecclesiastical permission)

O Mary, 
I consecrate myself to you,
Daughter of the Father,
Spouse of the Holy Spirit,
Mother of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
I will wear your Scapular always as a sign of this consecration,
and I offer my daily Rosary and the 
fulfillment of the obligations of each day
in reparation for sins,
particularly those against your Immaculate Heart,
and against the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
I desire to be ever more deeply united to His Heart, 
in the intimacy of your own
Immaculate Heart, with each passing 
moment of my life unto the last.  Amen

Sister Lucia's Monthly Novena to Our Lady of Fatima

Sister Lucia's Monthly Novena to
Our Lady of Fatima

     On the 4th day of every month, Sister Lucia would pray a special Novena to Our Lady of Fatima in anticipation of the 13th day. The novena included the Memorare and three Hail Marys.
 
   This month the Novena begins on the FirstSaturday, June 4,  which is also the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We hope you will begin praying the Novena every month!  Your First Saturday devotion also consoles Our Lady's heart and helps bring graces for salvation to those most in need of God's mercy.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
  
3 Hail Marys...Amen

May 13th - The Rich Content of the Message of Fatima - on the 99th Anniversary





The following is from The World Apostolate of Fatima Spiritual Guide for the Salvation of Souls and World Peace.  This blog post will also appear the the World Apostolate of Fatima Hawaii Division Blog.

The message of Fatima which springs from the apparitions of Our Lady, is a solid blueprint for life.  It cries out to be put into practice for the good of the world, and the salvation of souls.

Its teachings are in harmony with the Gospel, calling to mind the following elements with new emphasis:

-  The mystery of the Blessed Trinity;

-  The providence of God, which directs and governs the world and presides over the events of human history;

-  The omnipotence and omniscience of God, Who knows and realizes all things according to His exalted designs.  It foretold future events and revealed miraculous signs to prove the truth of God's predictions;

-  God, Who rewards or punishes, according to the good or evil done, though He is ever merciful towards sinners;

-  The reality of heaven, hell and purgatory;

-  The existence of Guardian Angels, not only of individuals but also of nations;

-  The real presence of Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament, and the necessity and value of Holy Communion;

-  The real presence of Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament, and the necessity and value of Holy Communion;

-  Sanctity as a condition of true happiness even on earth, and docility and correspondence to grace, the mysterious mixture of divine action and human effort;

-  The reality of sin as an offense against God with its tragic consequences for sinners and nations;

-  The flight from sin and amendment of life as an indispensable condition of the sate of grace;

-  The Christian solidarity of the Mystical Body of Christ;

-  The intercession of the Mother of God as a powerful mediatrix and dispenser of grace;

-  The necessity of penance and prayer, with their value of atonement and intercession;

-  The love of the Heart of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart of Mary - the great revelation of Fatima;

-  The importance of Marian devotions, particularly, the excellence and efficacy of the Rosary, the new devotion of the first Saturdays, and the value of Consecration of the Immaculate Heart of Mary;

-  The powerful action of grace, which so transformed the three little children at Fatima and led them to such a close union with God.

-  Russia, simultaneously a scourge that punishes the sins of the world, and the object of Divine Mercy, by the promise of its conversion through the intermediary of the Heart of Mary;

-  The sanctification of the family, in imitation of the vivid scene of the last apparition;

-  Devotion to the Holy Father and the and the necessity of purity and modesty;

-  The final triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The tour is dedicated to the three shepherd children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, to whom the Blessed Mother appeared and exhorted them to be fervent in working for the salvation of souls and conversion of sinners through daily prayer and penance in reparation for sins. She identified the conversion of sinners as key to peace in the world.
“In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph”

Say “Yes” to Our Lady

BLASPHEMOUS DEMONSTRATION AGAINST VIRGIN MARY CALLS US TO PRAYER AND REPARATION



BLASPHEMOUS DEMONSTRATION AGAINST VIRGIN MARY
CALLS US TO PRAYER AND REPARATION
 
Dear Blue Army Members:

A group of satanists plan to perform a blasphemous demonstration against the Virgin Mary on Christmas Eve in front of the historic St. Joseph Cathedral in downtown Oklahoma City.
 
The small group, led by Adam Daniels who received city approval to hold a satanic "black mass" last year, now has approval for a display entitled, "Virgin Birth is a Lie." Daniels plans to cover a statue of Mary in sulfur powder and ash and pour fake blood over it. The blood is to "add another layer of corruption to Mary, which is an emblem of the Catholic Church," he stated.
 
Archbishop Paul S. Coakley issued this statement: "Though disgusted by the audacity of the planned event, I am discouraging parishioners and others from giving this group the attention they seek, and instead inviting all to focus our attention on celebrating the joyful birth of Our Savior, Jesus Christ. On this holy night, we will give thanks to God and honor the Holy Family in reparation for these planned outrages against Jesus, Mary and Joseph."
 

The First Saturdays Communion of Reparation that Our Lady and Our Lord requested at Fatima calls us to make reparation for five blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
 
1. Against her Immaculate Conception
2. Against her Virginity
3. Against the Divine Maternity, while refusing to receive Her as the Mother of     
     mankind
4. By those who try to publicly implant in the hearts of children indifference,
     disrespect, and even hate against the Immaculate Mother.
5. By those who insult Her directly in Her Sacred Images.
 
The Oklahoma City demonstration certainly covers all five of the "thorns" that pierce Our Mother's Heart.
 
Please join with Archbishop Coakley in offering prayers and sacrifices to atone for this act, and let us welcome the Holy Family on Christmas Eve, into our hearts and homes.
 
Saturday, January 2 is the first First Saturday of 2016. If you haven't already done so, join our campaign to increase the practice of the First Saturdays Communion of Reparation as a Centennial Gift to Our Lady. 
 
May the peace of Christmas be with you,
  
 
David Carollo
Executive Director
