Fatima Seer Sr. Lucia on the New Efficacy of the Rosary in These Last Times

As October draws to a close, we conclude the 100th anniversary observance of the Fatima apparitions with the words of Sister Lucia dos Santos to mankind…

Our Lady of Fatima and the Holy Rosary

The appearance of the Virgin Mary in Fatima, which Lucia witnessed together with her cousins Francisco and Jacinta marked a new and definitive stage in salvation history. Making known Our Lady’s urgent appeal for repentance, prayer and renewed devotion to God, centered on the most Holy Rosary, was the singular mission to which Sister Lucia remained faithful her entire life. God’s Mercy, while great, is not inexhaustible. Mary implores us to holiness while there is still time.
The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families…that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem…no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.
— Sr. Lucia of Fatima

The Angel's Prayer

Days prior to Our Lady of Fatima’s apparition, an angel, calling himself the Angel of Peace and the Angel of Portugal, appeared to the three shepherd children. On one occasion they observed him prostrate before a host and chalice suspended in the air. Worshiping the Most Sacred Eucharist, the angel recited the following:

Most Holy Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences whereby He is offended. And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners. Amen. [Our Lady of Fatima and the most Holy Rosary, pray for us!]
