100 years fatima (1917 – 2017)
“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore you profoundly and I offer you the most precious body, blood soul and divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the World in preparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences with which He is offended, and by the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and of the Immaculate Heart of Mary I ask you for the conversion of poor sinners” (Prayer taught by the Anger, to the Children of Fatima)
On the following prayer, Our Lady said: “Say many times and especially when you make and sacrifices”: “O Jesus, it is for your love, for the conversion of sinners and in preparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary”
