Fatima Family Holy Hour-This Tuesday!

**June 13th is the 100th Anniversary of the Second Apparition at Fatima!

Fatima Family Holy Hours for World Peace
Second Fatima Family Holy Hour
Tuesday, June 13th

Candle-Lighting for Reparation ~ Marian Hymn ~ Fatima Reading & Prayer ~ Sorrowful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary ~ Litany of Our Lady of Fatima ~ Prayer for World Peace ~ Closing Hymn**
Our Holy Hour will begin with a Candle-Lighting for Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The candle will remain lit for the duration of the Holy Hour. Our Lady will see all our little lights from Heaven throughout the day, and know that there is love for her on earth…that we empathize with all her sorrows, especially for the outrages against the unborn. We will then sing a hymn and tell the story of the events on that particular day in the life of the three children, Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco. Prayers given to the children from on high will be said. We will then pray the Mysteries of the Rosary associated with that day of the week. Litany to follow, along with the Nomen Christi Apostolate Prayer for World Peace. We conclude with a closing hymn.

You may wish to print out the format after it is posted on the Holy Hour day, so everyone in your group may easily follow along. Also, please comment on our blog-tell us where you are from, your thoughts and prayer intentions. We will be celebrating the Holy Hour on the 13th of each month, from May to October. This is the day Our Lady appeared to the three children for six consecutive months in 1917, culminating with the great Miracle of the Sun, seen by thousands. Holy Hour can be performed any time during the day. This is not a video or live chat. It is a format for you to perform, either in the home or in church with pastoral permission. Holy Hours will be posted on our blog by 12:00 AM ET on the 13th of the month and comments will remain open for 24 hours.

If you would like email reminders each month, please contact us at director@nomenchristi.org.

***We also really need help to spread the word, so please email this info to your friends or whatever else you can do. ***

Let’s fill the world with light and prayer on this great Fatima Centennial!

How do we get in contact with this???

Check your parish events webpage or calendar - ours was marked with a cryptic ‘holy hour’ now I might arrange to go! Thanks CF!

Where on Long Island is this going on? My parish isn’t doing anything…

To Everyone:

Sorry if I did not make this clear enough. This is not happening in a church, unless you want to do it in your own church with your pastor’s permission, which would be great.

**This is a Holy Hour format that is posted on Nomen Christi Apostolate’s blog “In Search of the Authentic Life.” **

You can follow along with the format at any time during the day, or even on a different day, if you can’t do it on the 13th. And please let us know in the comments if you participate! Have I made this clear? Here are the links:

Thanks so much for your interest.

A printable version of the Holy Hour will be posted tonight by 12:00 AM US Eastern Time.

…or your family or group can follow along on their phones! Hope to hear from all of you tomorrow-please give us your prayer intentions! :angel1:

Many blessings to all on this Fatima Centennial of the 2nd Apparition. Lucia, Jacinta & Francisco, pray for us! St. Anthony of Padua, dear friend, who’s feast is today, pray for us! Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
