OREMUS COMMUNICATIONS AUGUST 2017 NEWSLETTER
Hello Friends: We continue to honor Our Lady of Fatima in this 100th Anniversary Year of her visits to the 3 children, Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco on 6 different occasions. At this particular time, we are, especially, focused on her visit on August 19, 1917 wherein she requested again that we pray the Holy Rosary daily.
As before in our recent newsletters, we refer to the book, “Fatima: The Full Story” by Fr. John De Marchi, I.M.C. and, specifically, page 105 for a more accurate synopsis of this 4th of the 6 apparitions.
As in the Cova da Iria only the three privileged children saw the celestial visitor. In the designs of Providence, they and they alone were to be the instruments of the message ….
“Go again to the Cova da Iria on the 13th and continue to say the Rosary every day.” Lucia again asked the Lady to perform a miracle that all might believe in her again.
“I will,” was the reply. “In October, I will perform a miracle so that everyone can believe in the Apparitions. If they had not taken you to Ourem, the miracle would have been greater. St. Joseph will come with the Holy Child to bring peace to the world.
Our Lord will also come to bless the people. Our Lady of the Rosary and Our Lady of Dolours will come too.” Lucia, of course, did not forget the sick who had asked her to remember them to the Lady, and she fervently asked for their care.
“I will cure some during the year.” was the reply. (Sadly the Lady added) “Pray, pray very much and make sacrifices for sinners, for many souls go to hell because no one makes sacrifices for them.” After this the Blessed Virgin took leave of her little friends and began to rise in the air in an eastward direction, leaving in the children’s souls a great longing for Heaven and a true hunger for the sacrifice that could save so many sinners.
In conjunction with the above, we are very glad to have back on the OCFRP as our guest Co-Host on the 17th, Mr. Carl Malburg, representing the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue Of Our Lady of Fatima Foundation. Carl will be commenting on these various aspects of the August 19 apparition as well as on an array of related topics, such as the criteria needed for official church recognition of an apparition and why Our Blessed Mother appeared on the 19th of August instead of the 13th as was her custom on previous apparitions.
On another subject dear to the heart of Our Blessed Mother, we will be focusing on her Assumption into heaven in our OCFRP on Tuesday, August 15 with a special Novena Prayer .
This along with celebrating the Feast Day of our patron, St. Maximilian Kolbe on Monday, August 14th, and we have the makings for an intense week of prayer.
To further assist us in these activities, we have once again as our guest Co-Host on the OCFRP, Fr. Peter Welsh from St. Helena Parish in North Philadelphia on Monday August 14; followed by our renowned author friend, Mr. Charles A. De Feo, O.P., who will join us on Wednesday, August 16.
We certainly hope that you and others can join us in prayer on these special dates as well as on other occasions throughout the weeks, as we continue to strive to make a spiritual difference.
