https://bit.ly/2XcgpJq Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun @ Fatima and the 10/16th @ 12pm “America Needs Fatima Rosary Rally” at the parish grounds here at Our Lady of Mercy
On this day, the anniversary of the “Miracle of the Sun,” Pope Francis prays that Mary’s light will free us from evil.
October 13, 1917, was the sixth and final of the Marian apparitions in Fatima, Portugal, that had started on May 13 of that year.
Calling herself “Our Lady of the Rosary,” Mary appeared to three little shepherd children, and urged Christians to practice penance, to pray the Rosary daily, and to have devotion to her Immaculate Heart for the conversion of sinners.
On the day of her final apparition, the “Miracle of the Sun” occurred. Witnessed by some 70,000 people, the sun “danced,” bringing many to believe that Our Lady really had been appearing to the little shepherds.
Echoing our Holy Father, Pope Francis’ prayer that Mary’s light will free us from evil, please join the “America Needs Fatima Rosary Rally” this Saturday 10/16th from 12pm to 1pm at the parish grounds. We pray to see you there.
