100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions

To do, as given by Our Lady of Fatima


• 

Pray the Rosary daily for peace in the world.

Our Lady said to the three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal, on July 13, 1917, “Continue to say the Rosary every day in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary, to obtain the peace of the world and the end of the war, because only she can obtain it.” She reiterated that call throughout her apparitions there, saying in May 1917, “Say the Rosary every day, to bring peace to the world and an end to the war [World War I],” and in September, “Continue the Rosary, my children. Say it every day that the war may end.”

• 

Perform and spread devotions to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

• 

Make reparation for blasphemies and outrages against Mary’s Immaculate Heart, especially by performing the Five First Saturdays devotion. Our Lady said on July 13:


You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world


The Blessed Mother to Sr. Lucia dos Santos on Dec. 10, 1925:


See, my daughter, my Heart encircled by thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. Do you, at least, strive to console me. Tell them that I promise to assist at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation all those who, in order to make reparation to me, on the First Saturday of five successive months, go to Confession, receive Holy Communion, say five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for a quarter of an hour, meditating on the … mysteries of the Rosary.

• 

Pray, fast, and do penance for the conversion of poor sinners and to make reparation for the sins of the world.

• 

Consecrate yourself to the Immaculate Heart.
