Special Worldwide Rosary on May 13, 2013
The Day that Our Lady First Appeared at Fatima
Catholics around the world planned to pray a special Rosary on Tuesday, May 13th to honor Our Lady of Fatima and to beg her to intervene in the world, to stop the growing spiral of sin, revolution and violence.
The driving force behind the Worldwide Fatima Rosary on May 13 was the thought that Our Lady would be pleased to see one million people praying the Rosary all together on May 13th, which is the very day She pleaded:
"Pray the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world!" —Our Lady of Fatima
In fact, most Catholics are quite familiar with the goodness of the Blessed Mother, and how easily She is touched by the prayers of Her children, and how She intervenes on behalf of Catholics by public prayer, especially by the praying of Her Rosary.
Two signal example of this are the great naval Battle at Lepanto where Catholic forces defeated a larger Turkish fleet in 1571, and the unexpected and miraculous liberation in 1955 of Austria from the unjust post-war Soviet Communism occupation.
If Our Lady has worked such wonders in the past, She can and will help us now to solve the growing problems of the world – if we do what She asked for at Fatima!
Everyone could be a vital part of the worldwide Fatima rosary by praying the Rosary, and inviting others to pray the Rosary also.
If someone is not familiar with the Fatima message and the power of the Rosary, now is a good time to educate them about why we should say the Rosary on May 13, the day Our Lady appeared to the three shepherd children at Fatima in 1917.
They can be told that we are:
- echoing what She asked for at that apparition;
- offering sufferings and reparations for the sins against Our Lord, as acts of supplication and for the conversion of sinners;
- praying the Rosary to obtain peace for the world.
They can also be told that world events will only get worse, and there will be no peace until we pray the Rosary and stop offending God. Simple!
Ultimately, we prayed this Worldwide Fatima Rosary on May 13 with absolute and unshakable faith in Our Lady’s promise to defeat Satan:
“Finally, My Immaculate Heart will triumph!”
May we all live to see it.
