100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions

‘Time and eternity await our faithful response’

Here we are at the 100th anniversary of the Marian apparitions of Fatima, Portugal, and what an incredible century it has been!

As Our Lady prophesied at Fatima, World War I came to an end, but World War II was on the horizon. Russia fell to atheistic Communism and spread her errors to many nations, causing much destruction and death. The historically Christian lands of Europe and North America have fallen away from the faith at a dizzying rate, although the lands that had been receiving missionaries from the West at the start of the Fatima century — such as Africa, Asia, and even Latin America — are now sending missionaries back to Europe and the United States.

The world has changed, but human nature has remained the same. The world and Russia have been consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the Holy Father and the bishops in union with him, as Our Lady of Fatima requested (albeit late), but the laity and the broader Church have largely ignored, or forgotten, Our Lady’s other requests that would lead to the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the coming of an era of peace in the world.

So we have prepared this website for you, hoping to help Marian Helpers, average Catholics, and everyone in their care to learn about Our Lady’s apparitions at Fatima, her message for the Church and the world, and what we can do right now, today, to help turn the course of human history from destruction to grace and glory; from the present darkness to God’s marvelous and everlasting light.

The hour grows late, and time and eternity await our faithful response to Our Lady’s call. All the graces of God are available to us through the Church. Let us take up the treasures of our inheritance as adopted sons and daughters of God. Let us go forth to all nations to rescue the lost and forsaken, and bring about a renewal of the world for the greater glory of God and the salvation of all.

May Mary Immaculate ever intercede for you, and Jesus, the Divine Mercy, bless you.
