Fatima Message and Devotion
Help us spread the Fatima Message and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by participating in one, or all of our many exciting and effective campaigns.
Become a Child of Mary
The backbone of our large-scale efforts is comprised of loyal monthly supporters called: Children of Mary.
By making a small, but consistent, monthly donation to Our Lady’s work, those devotees of Our Lady who join our Child of Mary program are the ones making it possible for ANF to spread the hopeful message of Fatima all across America.
St. Louis de Montfort often remarked that: “If you give Our Lady an egg, she will give you an ox.”
We often hear from our Child of Mary members that their small monthly gift to Mary has been repaid to them a thousand times over! Please read what C.S. from Hales Corner, Wisconsin has to say:
Send a White Rose to Fatima
Every woman’s heart glows when she is given a rose; and a white rose touches that “pearl-like” quality in her. Our Lady, God’s “pearl of great price,” is surely no exception! By sending a white rose to Fatima, you will be honoring Mary’s purity, and consoling her for so many offenses and blasphemies against her Son and Herself.
But that’s not all!
Your offering will go towards:
- Paying for the roses
- Helping make tens of thousands of Public Rosary Rallies possible
ANF’s goal is to reach 22,000 Public Square Rosary Rallies in October across our nation to pray for the conversion of America. Every white rose offering helps to make this a reality. Our nation needs Our Lady’s help, and by sending her a white rose, you will be telling her how much you love her, and at the same time you will be helping to spread the Fatima Message and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in America.
So please – today – let me send a white rose in your name and with your personal intentions, and make Our Lady smile.
Pray an act of Reparation to Our Lady
July 13, 1917:
The Mother of God appeared to three shepherd children saying:
"Sacrifice yourselves for sinners and say many times, especially when you make a sacrifice, 'O Jesus, this is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.'"
December 10, 1925:
While staying at the House of the Dorothean Sisters in Pontevedra, Portugal, Sister Lucia received a vision of Our Lady saying:
"See, my daughter, My Heart surrounded with thorns with which ingrates pierce me at every moment with blasphemies and ingratitude.”
Immediately after this, Sister Lucia heard the Boy Jesus beside His Mother say:
"Have pity on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother which is covered with thorns with which ingrate men pierce it at every moment with no one to make an act of reparation to pull them out."
Since its inception in 1973, America Needs Fatima has taken these supernatural requests very seriously and continually asks others to do the same.
The Five First Saturdays Devotion
The forgotten part of the Fatima Message
On December 10, 1925, Our Lady appeared a seventh time to Sister Lucia, saying:
"See, my daughter, My Heart surrounded with thorns with which ingrates pierce me at every moment with blasphemies and ingratitude. You, at least, make sure to console me and announce that all those who for five months, on the first Saturdays, go to confession, receive Communion, say five decades of the Rosary and keep me company for 15 minutes meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, with the purpose of making reparation to Me, I promise to assist them at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for the salvation of their souls."
It was at this profound moment in history that devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was established in detail…and with a powerful promise attached to it as well!
At America Needs Fatima, we refer to this as the “forgotten part” of the Fatima message. Perhaps because it came eight years after, and therefor was “eclipsed” by, the astounding Miracle of the Sun, devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary—so necessary to the establishment of Her Reign in the hearts of men—is often overlooked.
Get your Free Picture of Our Lady of Fatima
As we open our eyes to the beauties of creation, we can already feel the attentive gaze of our loving mother. At the first stirrings of our souls, our Heavenly Mother sets her gaze upon us. The Mother we all share with our Creator looks at us with a pure, sacred, royal, yet maternal gaze.
It is no wonder, then, that she renews her solicitude for her children when they stray in despair and do not return her gaze. Like a mother who is unwelcome in her own child’s home, she leaves a sign, a message, a remembrance, and a maternal promise: “I will never forsake you.”
She says: “Look deep into my eyes and let me look into yours.” In a striking way, this picture seems to reflect the very gaze of Our Lady, the gaze that seeks to convert and to save. It is a gentle reminder of her promise at Fatima: “Finally, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
The above text is printed on the reverse of every full-color 8 x 10 glossy photo of Our Lady of Fatima. It is our hope that this profound combination of truth, beauty and goodness will touch the souls of those who see it and thereby prepare them for the coming Reign of Mary, as predicted by Saint Louis de Montfort and foretold by Our Lady of Fatima when she promised:
"Finally, my Immaculate Heart will triumph."
