The refuge of our Mother’s heart

100th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun

Prayer of the Day
Consecration Prayer to Our Lady of the Rosary

Dear Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of the Rosary, you revealed to the shepherd children the desire of Jesus to make you known and loved and to establish in the world devotion to your Immaculate Heart.

Today we honor you and express our devoted love for you as we remember the centenary of your apparitions and the miracle of the sun which you foretold would be performed so that all may believe.

We believe! Help all to believe in our day! We beg you, dear Mother, to remember us in our anguished times. Help us to return to God Who is already so much offended.

Awaken in every heart remorse for sin and a spirit of reparation. Do not let poor sinners be lost forever, but let them find in your Immaculate Heart a refuge and the way that will lead them to God.

We consecrate ourselves to your Immaculate Heart and offer ourselves to God through you.

Let us be, sweet Mother, your docile instruments for extending the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, your Son, into the world. Amen.

Saints Francisco and Jacinta, pray for us!
