100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions - News

After almost 100 years, why is Fatima still worth our time and attention?
A Marian asks all to answer Our Lady's powerful plea.
Father Donald Calloway, MIC, and Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, spoke at this year's Divine Mercy Weekend Conference. Father Chris said, "The world today is ill, and the penicillin is Divine Mercy and it is administered by Mother Mary, the nurse."
The canonization falls on the 100th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady at Fatima.
One hundred years ago, Our Lady asked the world for prayers and penances. Have we been fulfilling her request?
By all accounts, nothing was remarkable about Lucia and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta before the heavens opened to them.
Pope Francis approved the second and final miracle needed to canonize Blessed Francisco and Jacinta Marto, two of the shepherd children who witnessed the Fatima Marian apparitions.
Are you suffering? If so, these two holy children have a request for you.
The documentation gathered for Sr. Lucia consists of over 15,000 letters, testimonies, and other documents that would support the nun's cause for beatification.
