Tuesday, May 13, 2008: (Our Lady of Fatima)

Our Lady of Fatima said: “My dear children, back in 1917 it was difficult in Portugal to talk publicly about religion, let alone apparitions from me. I appeared to the innocent children because they were open to heaven’s messages of prayer and warnings. I encouraged the people of that time to repent and pray my rosary. If there were enough prayer, Russia could be converted and she would not spread her errors, which was communism then. Many prayed for Russia and there has been an easing against religion, but communism is still a scourge of the world with its atheistic teachings. I still encourage the people of today to pray my rosary, especially in the family. The rosary is your weapon against evil, and your prayers are needed now more than ever for the conversion of sinners and the lukewarm from your materialistic society. Your people are forgetting their religious traditions and that is why fewer are coming to Sunday Mass. If you had the faith of a mustard seed, you could pray your rosaries enough to defeat abortion in your country. Pray for your children and your grandchildren that none of them would be lost to the evil one. You are all my children, and I reach out my mantle of protection around you.”
Jesus said: “My people, when a man and a woman get married, it is a joining of two lives in self-giving love as a commitment to each other. The flowers represent the life of this true love. They are vibrant at first but they tend to fade with time. Love between two spouses needs to be kept alive with a daily commitment and a communication of that love. Otherwise, there could be a fading of love as with the flowers. You need to water and strengthen your love by joining Me in your marriage. Love for Me and your spouse is a daily need in prayer to show your love for Me and each other. Flowers tend to be seasonal mostly in the spring, but your love for Me and your spouse needs to be strong in all seasons. If all marriages were as vibrant over the years as they were on their wedding day, then there would be very few divorces. Do not lose this spark of love for Me and your spouse, and you will have many years of happiness here on earth and in the life to come.”
