May 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of the Blessed Mother to the three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal.
The Blessed Mother appeared to Luca, 10, Francisco, 9 and Jacinta, 7 on the 13th day of the months of May – October 1917.
Her message to them was to be fervent in working for the salvation of souls and the conversion of sinners, especially through penance and the praying of the daily rosary.
She identified the conversion of sinners as key to peace in the world. We refer to her messages as Our Lady’s Peace Plan from heaven.
