Day 1 of the Novena to Our Lady of Fatima

We invite our readers to join us in a Novena of prayer to Our Lady of Fatima beginning today, May 5th and ending on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, May 13

During these nine days let us pray with confidence for our own personal intentions as well as for the conversion of sinners and for peace in the world –  according to the request of our Heavenly Mother herself.

It was 1917 when the three young shepherds heard her plea to “Pray, pray very much, and make sacrifices for sinners…”  and that urgent message to make reparation for outrages, sacrileges, and indifference which greatly offend the Sacred Heart of Our Lord,  and to pray for peace in the world, is more relevant than ever.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!


Day 1: First Secret of Fatima


In July of 1917, Our Lady of Fatima granted the children a frightening vision of hell and said sadly, “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart.”

“As horrible as are the physical chastisements associated with man’s disobedient rebellion before God, infinitely more horrible are the spiritual chastisements for they have to do with the fruit of grievous sin: eternal death. As is clear, only the Faith, which places man in the relationship of unity of heart with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the mediation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, can save man from the spiritual chastisements which rebellion against God necessarily brings upon its perpetrators and upon the whole of both society and the Church.”

– Cardinal Raymond Burke



Let us petition Our Lady of Fatima to hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners and for peace in the world and in our families.


Novena Prayer

Most Holy Virgin, you appeared at Fatima and revealed, to the three little shepherds, the treasures of graces hidden in the reciting of the Rosary.

Inspire our hearts with a sincere love of this devotion, so that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption, we may gather its fruits and obtain the conversion of sinners, and the conversion of non-believers throughout the world.

O Holy Mary, I also ask for the favor that I now so earnestly seek…

(Share your request…)

O Mary, may that which I ask in this novena, be for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of all people. Amen.

Say: Our Father… (x3), Hail Mary… (x3) and Glory Be… (x3)


Our Lady of Fatima,
Pray for us!
