Today is the anniversary of the last visit of Our Lady to the children at Fatima, Portugal. In honor of this day, I found this beautiful prayer:
Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima
“Dearest Mother, Queen of the Holy Rosary, who came to Fatima to reveal to all mankind the Divine plan for true Christian peace, of prayer, penance, and consecration, grant an abundance of grace, strength, and guidance to the members of Thy Fatima Crusade, here present and throughout the world. Inspire us to great zeal, oh great Mediatrix of All Graces, that we may be effective instruments in spreading devotion to Thy Rosary; that we may be faithful in wearing Thy scapular; that we may inspire our brothers in Christ to a life of sacrifice, penance, and modesty, and finally, that we may help to bring about that wonderful day when all men, through consecration to Thy Immaculate Heart, shall be one in Christ. Amen.”
I do not know the author of this poem but I found it on the Salve Maria Regina website. You can go there to get other Fatima prayers, to learn the story of Fatima, and to learn about the lives of the three children who were privileged to get those heavenly visits from Our Lady.
