Fatima

For more than 100 years, Fatima, Portugal has been one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the world. And I want to have you prayed for there in a special way.

What do you need lifted up in prayer? Do you or a loved one need prayers for a physical affliction? Is someone in your life fighting an addiction? Do you know a person who is struggling with their faith?

Fr. Studer at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima -PortugalSimply send your prayer needs to me and I will then have your intentions brought to Fatima where they will be presented to Our Lady at the very place where she appeared to three shepherd children and inspired the world.

I also want to pray for you at another special place of Marian devotion. You will be prayed for at a special Mass on October 13, the day of the "Miracle of the Sun." This was the first miracle at Fatima, taking place on October 13, 1917 when 70,000 people saw the sun whirl like a wheel of fire.

The message of Fatima is important to all of us because it is a message of peace. At Fatima, Our Lady gives us a pathway to bring peace into our hearts, our families and into the world. Our Lady of Fatima enlightens us about how peace can be achieved through prayer, sacrifice and consecration.

Every time Our Lady appeared at Fatima, she asked the children to pray the rosary. She reminds us that prayer is truly the foundation of peace and for our salvation. Our Lady of Fatima also stresses the importance of atoning for our sins. Peace is restored to our souls when we seek reconciliation and reparation for our wrong doings. Our Lady's message of peace is also a call to personal and public consecration to God. When people dedicate themselves to God, they lay the ground work for bringing peace to the world.

Today, I invite you to experience the power of Fatima through prayer, sacrifice and consecration.
