13 May 2021. On this anniversary of Fatima apparitions, we cordially invite all to join us in prayer.
What the Blessed Virgin revealed at Fatima was a spiritual way of life focussing on prayer, penance and reparation. Our Mother calls on us to give importance to the conversion of sinners and salvation of souls. But above all, we should give more importance to our own salvation. Also we need to offer our prayers and sacrifices in reparation to the offences done against God. Let us spare as much time as possible today to be in prayer.
In May 1988 the Blessed Virgin told Fr Stefano Gobbi:
‘These are the times of my great light.
These are the times of prayer and of penance.
I call upon you again today to pray especially for the
conversion of poor sinners, of the atheists
and of those who are far away.
Recite always the holy rosary.
Offer prayers and sacrifices for the salvation of souls,
because I repeat to you again today that many are
going to hell because there is no one to pray and to sacrifice for them’.
This is the time to pray. We encourage all those who have consecrated themselves to the immaculate heart of the Blessed Virgin to renew their consecration. This is also an invitation to those who are yet to realize the importance of securing the maternal care of the Holy Mother by consecrating themselves to her Immaculate Heart.
Remember, this May is critical. Please utilise fully every moment, every day the merciful God extends for the purification and conversion of humankind.
‘Give glory to the Lord your God before he brings darkness, and before your feet stumble on the mountains at twilight; while you look for light, he turns it into gloom and makes it deep darkness. But if you will not listen, my soul will weep in secret for your pride’ (Jer.13:16-17)
As the days of darkness approach, as deep darkness engulfs nations and as the world stumbles through the shadow of death, let us dedicate this day for prayer.
13 May 2021. We will spend this day with our Holy Mother. With Rosary in our hands, we will meditate on the mysteries of salvation. With readings from the Bible, we will listen to what the Father wants to tell us. We will pray for the grace to come to a true conversion. We also need to pray for the spiritual strength to face the days of uncertainty through which we live. Please also do not forget our brothers and sisters especially those in most need of our prayers.
May the Blessed Virgin intercede for us at all times and may Jesus Christ who is coming in glory bless us to see his hand of mercy before it is too late.
