Fatima Centennial Celebration
 

October 11th - 13th, 2017

In order to commemorate and respond to our Lady’s requests during her apparitions at Fatima, St. Patrick Parish will be hosting three days of perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament to pray in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to implore God’s mercy upon our nation and the world, and to intercede for the conversion of sinners.  These days of Eucharistic Adoration will culminate in a special Mass in honor of our Lady of Fatima followed by a candlelight procession with the Statue of our Lady through the town of Newport.  Please check out the schedule below.  You may sign up for an hour of Eucharistic Adoration by contacting Lucy Hampson via email at lahampson@myfairpoint.net or by phone at (603) 763-4820.  Please join us for these special days of prayer to honor the Mother of God and to console her Immaculate Heart!

The Message of Fatima

Our Lady came to Fatima to save the souls of her children from hell in the eternal order, and to bring peace to their world in the temporal. 

The core of her message can be expressed in three simple sentences:
1. Addressing the eternal order, she told us that hell exists and that souls are being lost to it because there is no one to make reparation for their sins.
2. Speaking of the temporal, she said that war is a consequence of sin.
3. The salvation of souls and the attainment of world peace require the conversion of sinners. “People must stop offending God because He is already so much offended.” [10-13-1917]

Almost everything else she said, the things she asked us to do, and her prophecies predicated on the nature of our response relate, either directly or indirectly, to these three fundamental elements.

A few examples:

  • She asks for the daily offering of prayer, penance and sacrifice in reparation for sin and for the conversion of sinners.
  • Her request that we pray the rosary every day is aimed at both reparation for sin and world peace.
  • Wearing the brown scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and living the consecration it signifies effectively disposes us toward the honoring of her requests.
  • Practicing the 1st Saturday Communions of Reparation devotion makes available the graces necessary for the salvation souls at the moment of their death.
  • The conversion of Russia will lead to the salvation of many souls and make an enormous contribution toward the attainment of world peace.

Our Lady’s Fatima Requests

1.  Daily offer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the sacrifices demanded by the  duties required of your state in life, as well as whatever hardships and difficulties God permits to touch your life, in reparation for your own sins, for the sins of others, and for the conversion of all sinners. In other words, “offer it up.” This expression which so many of us were taught by our parents isn’t heard much these days. Sister Lucia considered the living out of this disposition the most fundamental and important practical, everyday response to Fatima.

2.  Pray part of the Rosary daily while meditating on the Mysteries in reparation for sin, for the conversion of sinners, and for world peace.

3.  Wear the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel as both a sign and a reminder of your consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and as a protection against the snares of Satan.

4. Practice the devotion of the Communion of Reparation on the first Saturday of each month which has come to be popularly known as the 1st Saturday Devotion .

5. Contribute to the establishment of devotion to The Immaculate Heart of Mary in the world by spreading the Message of Fatima to others.

The honoring of all of these requests taken collectively and derivatives thereof  constitutes the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary which Our Lady told Lucia God desired.
