LET US PRAY THE ROSARY
 
Our Lady in her appearance told the three children of Fatima to pray for sinners, - those who are lost, confused and who cannot find their way to God.
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
In the Gospel of Luke we read about true blessedness. "Blessed is the womb that carried you, blessed are those who hear the word of God." In 1917, the Blessed Virgin appeared to three little children near Fatima in Portugal. Lucia was 10, Francisco, 9 and Jacinta was 7. While they were watching their sheep a dazzling light flashed in the sky. Suddenly Our Lady appeared and told them: "I come from Heaven." There were six appearances between May and October. The last appearance was accompanied by the miracle of the sun, the vision of the Holy Family, Our Lord in His manhood blessing the crowd, and of Our Lady as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Thousands witnessed the miracle of the sun - too many to question that this actually took place. The scene of the three children kneeling in front of our Blessed Mother is in our very own rosary terrace. Whether Fatima is of interest to you are not, you will be interested in what little Jacinta did in later years. She would go into the mountains to pray the Hail Mary, stopping after each word. She would say "Hail" and then wait for the word to echo back from the mountains. Slowly and reverently she called out the Hail Mary in this fascinating way.
 
That little child realized, as you and I must realize, that the words of the Hail Mary were brought from Heaven. The first part, "Hail, full of grace," was spoken by the angel who told Mary she was to be the Mother of God; the second part, "blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb," were uttered at Heaven's inspiration by Elizabeth; the last part was added by the Church. Our Lady in her appearance told the three children of Fatima to pray for sinners, - those who are lost, confused and who cannot find their way to God.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: With Mary may we have joy. We want to tell her we have joyful hearts! We want to talk to her - in her own words, but better still, in the words of the Hail Mary, the words brought down from Heaven. Like little Jacinta we want to pronounce every word with love and thought. We want to hear every word echo back from Heaven and into our hearts.
 
We pray at this retreat center named in honor of Her Immaculate Heart that she will continue to intercede for each of you.
