Feast Day Mini-Study: Our Lady of Fatima

Today we celebrate the great Feast of Our Lady of Fatima and the prophetic series of miraculous apparitions in which she gave us God’s peace plan for the world. Our Lady of Fatima instructed us to, “Say the Rosary every day to bring peace to the world and the end of war.”
Women of Grace, in union with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, invites all of our friends to join in fasting and praying the Rosary today. Honor Our Blessed Mother in this small way!

Saint Jacinta Marto-100th Anniversary Celebration

by Thea Parsons
We are celebrating the life of Saint Jacinta Marto, a young Saint with more humility and heroic virtue than many of us reading this email! Without question, she accepted the call of God through Our Blessed Mother to suffer…to suffer for the conversion of sinners! To pray for those who have no one to pray for them, the lowly. How blessed are we by this young Saint?! By her courage?! May she intercede on our behalf, that we may exercise the same obedience she did with her brother and cousin, that we may be as courageous and steadfast in our, ‘yes,’ when we are called, and in our prayer, and suffering!

Virgin Most Powerful

May 30

“God has fashioned and shaped only one enmity, and that an irreconcilable one, which will endure and even increase, until the end. It is that between the Virgin Mary and the Devil, between the children and servants of the Blessed Virgin and the children and accomplices of Satan; so that the most terrible of the enemies of Satan created by God is Mary,
his Blessed Mother.”

-St. Louis de Montfort

 

Today’s Reflection:

How fortunate we are to have Mary as our Blessed Mother for always. How can I increase my love and respect for my Blessed Mother?
