Two Friends of Mary: Saturday, February 20, 2016

J.M.J. Today is the Feast of Blesseds Jacinta and Francisco, two of the three seers of Our Lady of Fatima in 1917.

Blessed Jacinta died on this day in 1920.

These children were physically small but veritable spiritual giants. They loved God, venerated Our Lady, asked pardon for their sins and gave good example to others.

In Blesseds Jacinta and Francisco we see the path to Heaven as being so straightforward, even if, at times, very challenging.

May we love Mary as this duo does in Paradise!


  1. a long time ago I read the articles about Fatima. Pope Wojtyla for years has repeated in his speeches the words I murmured as I prayed the rosary, after seeing visions: no one ever told me about Fatima. in the visions I saw some things that I later read that had happened to those children. Now I am sick and alone, I'm getting more visions, implore you to pray for me, I need it just like the Pope Francis ... no one prays for me! in the pope's speeches are gone my prophecy: I teach Latin in a secondary school, and I am sad and sick! pray for me

  2. +J.M.J.+ Thank you for writing. I will pray for you. May you be well in body, mind and spirit.

  3. +J.M.J.+ P.S. And I am happy that you love Our Lady of Fatima and Latin.
