Fatima Prayers

There are several prayers that the Angel of Peace taught the children to pray and which were taught by Our Lady.  We benefit so greatly from praying these prayers impromptu throughout the day as we are asked to, or by praying them in chaplet form.  Our Lady asked repeatedly for the rosary to be prayed daily for peace.

Sanctification of the Family

In the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart prophecied at Fatima, Mary calls for the sanctification of family life as an important part of the message and devotion. This is a call for each of us to conform our families more to God's plan for family life, which is portrayed by the love of the Holy Family and is a miniature Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
