Special Petitions for Our Lady of Fatima
I want to raise up your needs and special prayers to Our Lady of Fatima. For years I have wanted to make a pilgrimage to Fatima. Our Lady's appearance to the three poor Portuguese children has always inspired me. As a very young altar server in my home parish, I remember reciting the Latin prayers at the foot of the altar and looking up at the beautiful statue of Our Lady of Fatima above the tabernacle.
This year I have the opportunity to make my first pilgrimage to Fatima, a lifelong dream.
I want to take your prayers and the intentions you list below with me and present them to Our Lady.
What strikes me about the appearances and messages of Fatima is the sheer breadth of our Blessed Mother's loving concern; from the intensely personal, all the way to the global and international. Her love for all of her children reaches deep into our hearts.
When I pray the rosary in the Basilica of the Holy Rosary, I will remember you and all your loved ones. When I look at the lovely statue of Our Lady of Fatima, be assured I will whisper a prayer for you.
