Our Lady of Fatima

Our Lady of Fatima is the title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary by those who believe that she appeared to three shepherd  children at Fatima, Portugal on the 13th day of six consecutive months in 1917, starting on 13 May, the Fatima holiday.  The title of Our Lady of the Rosary is also used in reference to the same apparition; the children related that the apparition specifically identified herself as “the Lady of the Rosary”.  It is also common to see a combination of these titles, i.e., Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima.

Between May and October of 1917, three shepherd children, Lucia, Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto reported visions of the Virgin Mary in the Cova da Iria fields outside the hamlet of Aljustrel, very close to Fatima, Portugal.  They had this experience on the 13th day of each month at approximately the same hour.  Lucia described seeing Mary as “brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal glass filled with the most sparkling water and pierced by the burning rays of the sun”.

According to Lucia’s account, Mary confided to the children three secrets, known as the Three Secrets of Fatima.  She exhorted the children to do penance and to make sacrifices to save sinners.  The children wore tight cords around their waists to cause pain, abstained from drinking water on hot days, and performed other works of penance.  Most important, Lucia said Mary asked them to say the Rosary every day, reiterating many times that the Rosary was the key to personal and world peace.  Many young Portuguese men, including relatives of the visionaries, were then fighting in World War I.

Daily Readings
 June 12th, 2019
2 COR 3:4-11
Thought of the day
    June 12th, 2019 Wednesday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 361 Reading 1 2 COR 3:4-11 Brothers and sisters: Such confidence we have through Christ toward God. Not that of ourselves we are qualified to take credit for anything as coming from us; rather, our qualification comes from God, who has indeed qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter brings death, but the Spirit gives life. Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, was so glorious that the children of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of its glory that was going to fade, how much more will the ministry of the Spirit be glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation was glorious, the ministry of righteousness will abound much more in glory. Indeed, what was endowed with glory has come to have no glory in this respect because of the glory that surpasses it. For if what was going to fade was glorious, how much more will what endures be glorious. Responsorial Psalm PS 99:5, 6, 7, 8, 9 R.(see 9c) Holy is the Lord our God. Extol the LORD, our God, and worship at his footstool; holy is he! R. Holy is the Lord our God. Moses and Aaron were among his priests, and Samuel, among those who called upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them. R. Holy is the Lord our God. From the pillar of cloud he spoke to them; they heard his decrees and the law he gave them. R. Holy is the Lord our God. O LORD, our God, you answered them; a forgiving God you were to them, though requiting their misdeeds. R. Holy is the Lord our God. Extol the LORD, our God, and worship at his holy mountain; for holy is the LORD, our God. R. Holy is the Lord our God. Alleluia PS 25:4B, 5A R. Alleluia, alleluia. Teach me your paths, my God, and guide me in your truth. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel MT 5:17-19 Jesus said to his disciples: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven."
