I’m corresponding with a Protestant gentleman regarding Fatima and I brought up the Fatima prayer. Here is what he wrote:
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of Hell; lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy."
“Here’s what I’m trying to find out and so far have been unable to do so. When did this quote originate? I’ve searched several sites and nothing was said about it other than it was the ‘Fatima prayer.’ Was this added decades later? There are several quotes from the apparition that I will delve into after we’ve settled on this one.
The first is this. If the quote is attributed to 1917 then it would have legitimacy in that It speaks of Jesus. However if it was added later especially afterward by the Jesuits, who shielded Lucia and dressed much of what happened in Christian terms than it speaks for itself.”
Does anyone know the origin of this prayer? I had assumed it was taught by the Blessed Virgin Mary to the children at Fatima. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
