Feast Day: Our Lady of Fatima

Bonjou, zanmi! Today is the feast day of Our Lady of Fatima. She was an apparition of the Blessed Mother who appeared to three Portuguese children in 1917. She encouraged them to promote devotion to the Rosary.

Here is a novena prayer to her:


Most Holy Virgin, who has deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three little shepherds the treasures of graces hidden in the recitation of the Rosary, inspire our hearts with sincere love of this devotion.

By meditating on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in your Rosary, may we gather the fruits contained therein and obtain the conversion of sinners, the conversion of Russia, the Peace of Christ for the world, and this favor that I so earnestly seek of you in this novena….

(here mention your request)

I ask this of you, for the greater glory of God, for your own honor and for the good of all people. Amen


Say the
Our Father,
Hail Mary
Glory Be (three times each)


Note: This prayer was given at the time that Russia was going into non-religious Communism. Feel free to eliminate that bit, or change it as you see fit.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
