onwards towards the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady to the 3 children of Fatima
*Sharing on Fatima (next year will be the 100th anniversary of the Apparitions of Our Lady to the 3 children in Fatima, 1917)* (beautiful and simple prayers taught by the Angel and how Blessed Jacinta and Sr Lucia offered everything up)
The Guardian Angel of Portugal, St Michael the Archangel taught the 3 children this: _(this year, 2016, will be the 100th anniversary of the Angel appearing to the 3 children and preparing them for the visits of Our Lady)_ _*say slowly and reverently*_
My God, I believe in Thee! I adore Thee! I hope in Thee, and I love Thee! I ask pardon of Thee for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love Thee. (3 times)
Most Holy Trinity-Father, Son and Holy Ghost-I adore Thee profoundly, I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.
After which he also told them:
Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended and as a petition for the conversion of sinners. Bring peace to your country this way.
After Our Lady appeared to the 3 children, whenever Jacinta and Lucia did not like something that was happening to them, they offered it up using this formula:
O my Jesus, it is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, for the Holy Father, and in reparation for the wrongs done to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
_They loved to offer up their sacrifices for the Holy Father because *he* really needs our prayers and sacrifices_
