The apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima in 1917 represent some of the most important events in the history of the 20th century—if not all time. In them, Our Lady appeared to three shepherd children—two canonized saints, Jacinta and Francisco Marto, and Lucia dos Santos—calling for repentance and a return to God (as the message of Our Lady and the saints ever is). Presaging the end of the First World War and the start of the Second, as well as the Communist ideological takeover of all the Western world stemming from Russia, and even the assassination attempt on Pope St. John Paul II, Fatima is a unique apparition that can scarcely be missed by Catholics in this age.
In Fatima's Message for Our Times, Msgr. Joseph A. Cirrincione summarizes the calls of Our Lady of Fatima in 1917 for a return to a life of prayer in accordance with the Church's tradition, especially prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. In particular, this book promotes the Eucharistic devotion of the Holy Hour of Reparation, a powerful and much-needed spiritual weapon. Our Lady never tells us anything that would lead us astray from Our Lord; instead, she only ever says to "do whatever He tells" us. At Fatima, she echoed that message; let us heed her pleas for a softening of our hard hearts.
