 ~ ANGEL of  PORTUGAL ~
PREPARING THE WAY
FOR THE VISITATION
  "you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."

The children were born in the village of Aljustrel, parish of Fatima which was a protected world of the catechism and scripture.  The world around them lived in freemasonry, (which was not kind to the church), and political unrest which would stir a war that would effect the whole world. The angel of Portugal prepares the hearts of the children for the coming of the Virgin by teaching them how to pray.  We can gain much from these prayers by praying them with an open heart and  letting them sink deeply into our being.
 + 1st VISIT +
Beginning in the spring of 1916, the Angel of Portugal came 3 times to tutor the children, preparing them for the first visitation of the Mother of God. On his 1st visit he said:
+
  "Do not be afraid. I am the angel of peace. Pray with me."
  +
+Then he knelt down and bending over, touched  his forehead to the ground.  The children did the same and then heard the angel say 3 times:
++
   "My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You.
I ask pardon for those who do not believe,
do not adore, do not hope, and do not  love You."
+
Then he said
+
   "Pray in this way. The hearts of Jesus and Mary are ready to listen to you."
    + 2nd VISIT +
The children are playing and suddenly  the angel comes again and says:
+
   "What are you doing? You must pray! Pray! The hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs for you. You must offer your prayers and sacrifices to God, the Most High."
+
 They asked how they could do this and the angel answered:
+
  "In every way you can offer sacrifice to God in reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for sinners. In this way you will bring peace to our country, for I am its guardian angel, the Angel of Portugal. Above all, bear and accept with patience the sufferings God will send you."
 +  3rd VISIT +
The angel leaves the chalice suspended in the air and says:
  'Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, 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 reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference's by which He is offended. And by the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.'




~ ASSAULT AGAINST ROSARY ~
LUCIA de JESUS dos SANTOS
'The devil,' she lamented, 'had focused his assault against the Rosary, which she described as the prayer, after the holy liturgy itself, "most apt for preserving the faith in souls." Devotion to the Immaculate Heart would be key, said the famous nun, and that consists of considering the Blessed Mother as the "seat of mercy, of goodness, and of pardon and as the certain door by which we are to enter Heaven."
+
  "There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary," she reassured. "With the Holy Rosary, we will save ourselves. We will sanctify ourselves. We will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls."
+
Sister Lucia died February 13, 2005 of congestive heart failure. 
May the Lord give her glory in his kingdom.




 ~ MARY and the ROSARY ~
I AM THE LADY OF THE ROSARY
At Fatima, Mary revealed herself as 'Our Lady of the Rosary' emphasizing the praying of the rosary daily to all of her children. Today, we are called to pick up our rosaries and pray them more than ever before.
+
  "Say the Rosary every day, to bring peace to the world and the end of the war. I want you to come on the 13th of next month, [July] to pray the Rosary every day, and to learn to read. Later, I will tell you what I want."
 +
INSPIRED TO DESIGN ROSARIES
In honor of this beautiful declaration, we were inspired to make three rosaries, (two inspired and made on May 13th, 2000  in remembrance of  Jacinta and her brother, Francisco) - They called the sun, 'Our Ladies Lamp' and the stars, 'The Angels Lanterns'. We honor these two because they set a valuable example to families and their children today on how we should live our lives by saying 'yes' to the Lord so we may fully become who he made us to be.  The 'yes' of these children changed the world. 
+
THIRD INSPIRED BY SISTER LUCIA
The third and most recent one was dedicated to Sister Lucia on Feb 13, (the day of her death).  'I Adore Thee' reflects the words spoken by the Angel of Portugal to the children. On the death of Sr Lucia, we dedicated the first rosary shown.
VISITS FROM MAY TO OCTOBER
(and Mary's constant message regarding the rosary)
+
13 MAY
In Mary's first visit with the 3 little shepherd children, she assured them  "Do not be afraid, I will not harm you." When Lucia, the oldest child asked where she came from,   The Lady pointed to the sky and said: "I come from heaven."  Then she asked what she wanted and Mary replied: "I have come to ask you to come here for six months on the 13th day of the month, at this same hour. Later I shall say who I am and what I desire. And I shall return here yet a seventh time."
+
Lucia asked her if they would go to heaven and Mary relpied:
  'Yes' she said, ' but Francisco will need to say many rosaries first.'
during each visit she spoke of the rosary
+
13 JUNE
  "Say the Rosary every day, to bring peace to the world and the end of the war. I want you to come on the 13th of next month, [July] to pray the Rosary every day, and to learn to read. Later, I will tell you what I want."
 +
13 JULY
  "I want you to come here on the 13th of next month, [August] to continue to pray the Rosary every day in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary, in order to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war, because only she can help you."
+
She also said, 
  "When you pray the Rosary, say after each mystery:
'O my Jesus, forgive us, save us from the fire of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are most in need.' "
+
13 AUGUST
  "Go again to the Cova da Iria on the 13th and continue to say the Rosary every day. Pray, pray very much, and make sacrifices for sinners;  for many souls go to hell, because there are none to sacrifice themselves and pray for them."
+
    13 SEPTEMBER
  "Continue to pray the Rosary in order to obtain the end of the war."
+
13 OCTOBER
  "I am the Lady of the Rosary. Continue always to pray the Rosary every day. The war is going to end, and the soldiers will soon return to their homes."
+
TODAY HER MESSAGE 
IS LOUD AND CLEAR - PRAY THE ROSARY
More than every before we must hear her message regarding the powerful prayers of the rosary.  Please take the time to pray your rosary and encourage others to do the same.  Pray for our Pope Francis, who will need our prayers, along with all our Priests, Religous and for our Nations Leaders.  May they have the spirit of  our founding fathers.




~ ROAD to SAINTHOOD ~
8WE ARE ALL
CALLED TO BE SAINTS
Those who have given us the way through their life choices are called forward by the church and named.  The church  is careful in these choices, taking time to study and confirm the holiness of each person.  Below is a short overview of the steps taken before a person or person receive the title of Saint before their name. In this case of the children of Fatima:

~~~{ 1946 } ~~~
      The preliminary process of beatification of Francisco and Jacinta Marto began.
+
~~~{ 1952 - 1979 }~~~
The formal opening of the Canonical Informative Process began at the diocesan level and concluded in 1979 by presenting the documents to the Congregation of Saints.
+
~~~{ 1989 }~~~
They were then declared "venerable" by a Decree of that Sacred Congregation on 13 May.
+
~~~{ 1999 }~~~
A miracle was approved on 28 June.
+
~~~{ 2000 }~~~
On May 13th, the 83rd anniversary of the first apparition, Pope John Paul  II  gave the Declaration of Jacinta and Francisco Marto as 'Blessed'.  This represents the last stage before the Church's official recognition of their holiness or sainthood.





~ 3 SECRETS of FATIMA ~
HAVE THEY ALL 
BEEN REVEALED?
   2 of the 3 secrets or prophecies of Fatima, are believed to be WW II (a vision of 'hell') and the rise and fall of Communism and the USSR.  The 3rd secret has been filled with speculation as nothing has ever been revealed about it until recently.  Many believed it had to do with the end of the world. But on May 13, 2000, the Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano said in part 'the 3rd secret of Fatima' speaks of a 'bishop clothed in white'  -who-  'falls to the ground, apparently dead, under a burst of gunfire.'
(Sister Lucia, the last living visionary of Fatima, recently confirmed this to be John Paul II.)
+
THE VIRGIN 
OF FATIMA INTERVENES
Sodano also commented that the Holy Father believes the Virgin of Fatima saved his life after he was shot by Ali Agca, a Turkish gunman, in St. Peterís square on May 13, 1981, the anniversary of the first reported vision of the Virgin of Fatima in 1917. When the Pope turned his head to look at a young girl wearing an image of Our Lady of Fatima, the poisoned bullet aimed at his head missed.
+
(It was recently revealed this was a political attempt of assassination by the Communists to remove the Holy Father who had done much to block the party. This is now a matter of history.)
+
FORGIVENESS RELEASES
A recent interview with the gunman, Ali Agca revealed that he has desired, if released, to spend 10 days with the Virgin of Fatima.  A perfect example of the reason we must forgive, like John Paul II forgave this attempt on his life.  Forgiveness releases - allowing both sides to heal.
+
FINDING THE BULLETS
The first bullet, which almost killed John Paul II, is now set in the crown of the Virgin in Fatima Portugal. The second was found miraculously 'frozen' in the barrel of Agca's gun.




~ THE SKY WAS RED ~
THE NIGHT 
THE ENTIRE SKY WAS RED
I remember well the "lights" at night as foretold at Fatima.  I was about 6 at the time - in first grade. Everyone was outside very late Ö just looking.  We were all agog ... I mean everyone in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the world!!  Since we had never heard of Fatima, there was no apprehension.  There was no association made at that time with any place except the north-pole.
+
OUR MEMORIES WERE THE SAME
It wasn't until I was an adult that I learned about Fatima.  Communications were so different then, and the second world war occupied everyone's attention, because as you certainly know, everyone one had relatives in the service.  Long after Fatima became a Catholic household word, I heard Mother Angelica telling how she had seen the lights and it brought everything back to me.  Our memories were the same, but I had never made the connection.
+
SOON MUCH BLOOD SHED
Soon after, I heard how Hitler went out on his balcony to view the sight and it made my skin crawl to think that we had watched the same thing at the same time and HE was so intimately involved in such an obscene way.  He told his staff members at the meeting, that there was soon going to be much blood shed.  And at the time, no one knew what *he* was talking about.
+
I'll bet there are many people of a certain age who saw the lights also but never put the story together.  Maybe this will help.  That night - the entire sky was red!!  Joan N (FL)
