MAY 13th – FEAST OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA
Most Holy Virgin, who came to Fatima to reveal to the three little shepherds the treasures of graces hidden in praying the Rosary, impress upon our souls a fervent love for this devotion.  By meditating on the mysteries of our redemption may we learn how to use the teachings which lie therein and obtain the graces we ask in this prayer for the glory of God and the redeeming of our souls. Amen.

FATIMA PRAYERS
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee! I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee. Amen.
Delivered by the Angel of Peace during the First Apparition of the Angel to the three shepherd children of Fatima in spring of 1916.
ANGEL’S PRAYER
O 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 indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.
Delivered by the Angel of Peace during the Third Apparition of the Angel in October 1916. The Angel appeared to the three shepherd children holding a chalice in his hands, with a Host above it from which drops of Blood were falling into the chalice.
DECADE PRAYER
O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy. Amen.
Delivered by Our Lady during the Third Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima to the three shepherd children on July 13, 1917. Traditionally prayed after the ‘Glory Be’ for each decade of the Rosary.
PRAYER BEFORE THE ROSARY
Queen of the Holy Rosary, you have deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three shepherd children the treasures of grace hidden in the Rosary. Inspire my heart with a sincere love of this devotion, in order that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption which are recalled in it, I may be enriched with its fruits and obtain peace for the world, the conversion of sinners, and the favor which I ask of you in this Rosary. (Here mention your request.) I ask it for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of souls, especially for my own. Amen.
NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF FATIMA
Pray for 9 consecutive days
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 a sincere love of this devotion, so that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in it, we may gather the fruits and obtain the conversion of sinners and this favor that I so earnestly seek, which I ask of you in this novena, for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of all people. Amen.   Pray 3 sets of: 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, and 1 Glory Be.

What’s New

  • As we await the announcement of the timing and details of Phase 1 of the state’s recovery program, the Archdiocese has provided some guidance on what to expect when public Masses resume again (note that this will NOT be in Phase 1. The only Masses permitted in Phase 1 will be weddings and funerals).

Please see the video from Archbishop Lori posted below, designed to help you understand some of the changes you can expect at that time.
