Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Today I began chapter 18 in the book by Sister Lucia of Fatima: “Calls” From the Message of Fatima. I was immediately struck by the title of this chapter because it is such a crucial need in the world today – more than when I first read this book – and perhaps more urgent than ever before in the Church and in the world. In the chapter, “The Call to the sanctification of the family”. Sister Lucia wrote:
God chose to conclude the Message in Fatima, in October 1917 with three further apparitions which I regard as three more calls placed before us for our consideration, so that we may keep them in mind during our earthly pilgrimage…
…The first was the apparition of the Holy Family: Our Lady, and the Child Jesus in the arms of St. Joseph, blessing the people.
God willing, I’ll continue this in my next post.
