Fatima

Would you like to be prayed for at one of the most sacred places in the world? Fatima has been a place of peace and miracles for more than 100 years. Last year, Pope Francis visited Fatima and reminded us about the importance of this special place:

"Mary came here to remind us that God's light dwells within us and protects us. According to the belief and experience of many pilgrims, if not of all, Fatima is more than anything this mantle of Light that protects us, here as in almost no other place on earth."

In addition to being prayed for at Fatima, you will also be remembered in prayer at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows, the spiritual home of the Missionary Oblates in the United States.

In 1917 Fatima became a focal point of the entire Catholic Church. Three children were watching their sheep when Our Lady appeared to them holding a rosary. Our Lady returned five times with the same message: pray the rosary and offer sacrifices for the conversion of sinners.

We celebrate our Fatima Mass every year on October 13 because that is the day of the "miracle of the sun. "On October 13, 1917 about 70,000 people gathered at Fatima when Our Lady appeared to the children and asked that a chapel be built there in her honor. After the apparition, the sun could be gazed at without difficulty, and whirling like a wheel of fire, it seemed about to fall upon the earth. This was the first miracle at Fatima, and over the decades many other smaller miracles have taken place there in the hearts of pilgrims.
