The origins of this powerful prayer date back to May 13, 1917, when three young shepherd children from Fatima Portugal – Lucia dos Santos, Jacinta Marto and Francisco Marto – received a divine visitation from above while they were tending their flocks in Cova da Iria. They encountered an apparition of Virgin Mary who delivered several key messages about repentance, penance and prayer that would transform their lives forever.
Following these profound experiences at Fatima are many devotions that have resulted from Our Lady’s messages but none more special than “the Rosary.” Tied into it is what we now know as the “Fatima Prayer,” which follows each mystery.
This humble yet powerful plea to Mary has since been recited by millions around the world seeking intercessary assistance with earthly troubles or travailments; however small or large. It remains one of the most profound ways Catholics honour Our Lady’s requests for both personal sanctification as well ‘petitioning’ on behalf others too struggling through life’s hand downs.
