I mean, why else would Mary have repeated
the command “Pray the Rosary” with each and every one of her appearances at Fatima?
She promised the Rosary would bring
peace to the world…
But do we have peace?
No, sadly, not in the world, not in our cities and towns, not even in our individual lives.
No, my friend, her promises are not empty – history has proven that over and over again…
But our response to her requests at Fatima have fallen short, big time.
But it is not too late!
Fatima Centennial year, let’s join together in redoubling our efforts to pray the Rosary and pray it with conviction, trusting in her promises, like the student in Bagdad….
Let me tell you about it:
A 25-year-old female
student was praying in the Chaldean Catholic Church in Baghdad on October 31, 2010 …
…when Muslim terrorists attacked!
Amid that horrific bedlam and terrible carnage, the student courageously hung on to her rosary and prayed even as the Islamic terrorist accosted
By the grace of God, she was spared from death.
Thankfully, this poor child of Mary discovered the power of the Rosary and the protection of the Mother of God.
But what will it take for us to make that same discovery?
What will it take for our loved ones to reach for their
rosaries and look for the peace that only God can give?
Hopefully, not a terrorist attack.
Like a true mother, Our Lady gave the solution for every crisis we may find ourselves
Do you have financial troubles?
Do your children wander from the Church?
Does your marriage cause you more pain than joy?
When all seems lost humanly speaking, when events in our lives take a turn for the worst, we must not give in to the
temptation that her promises are empty.
Instead, let’s take a firmer hold on our Rosaries and unite our hearts with hers—today
and every day until the triumph of her Immaculate Heart.
