October 13th is the anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun in Fatima.
How quickly we forget.
I know the generation that lived through Fatima filled their churches, even met there on week nights to pray devotions like the rosary. They prayed the rosary at home with their families regularily because the miracle of the sun was a fresh miracle to them.
Time has dulled us. We practice our faith so little now in comparison.
We have lost our connection to Fatima, for the most part. Are First Saturdays promoted? Are our churches filled for rosary devotions weekly? Are we more genteel in our speech and manner, or do we blaspheme more, speaking crassly of holy things? Are churches filled for Sacramental Confessions monthly as she speaks of? No, but everyone receives....
Our Lady spoke about how fashions would be coming that would offend God and that we are not silent enough in Church. We NEED a spirit of reparation.
We NEED Fatima. Read everything you can about it.
Let's make it fresh in our hearts so that we are not ungrateful for such a miraculous event and the guidance it was for our lives. Let's pray that our Priests, led by our Bishops speak about Fatima to us all the time, reminding us.
Let's be those kind of Catholics again and renew our faith. Let's do more rather than less.
AMDG! Pray for me, I'll pray for you too.
