Posted in Morning Prayers, Saint of the Day, The Blessed Virgin Mary

Thought for the Day – 20 February

You might think that if the Blessed Mother of God appears to you and speaks to you, you are a saint.    But that is not necessarily true.    What is true is that Mary chose to come to children who the year before had been visited by the Angel of Peace, children who had listened to the angel’s message and prayed the prayer the angel taught them.    They responded to Mary in the same way and prayed the Rosary and offered sacrifices for sinners and for the conversion of the world.    They were children who wanted to please God and that is why the Church has declared them Blessed.

Francisco and Jacinta died within a short time, as the Lady had said they would. They were beatified on May 13, 2000.    At that time Lucia los Santos was a Carmelite nun in Portugal. Sister Lucia died February 13, 2005 at age 97.   The shrine of Our Lady of Fatima is visited by up to 20 million people a year and is the source of many conversions and miracles.

Blesseds Francisco and Jacinta Pray for us!

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
