This summary of Our Lady’s message, updated to include the important development of the canonisation of Francisco and Jacinta by Pope Francis on 13th May 2017, explains why we need the message of Fatima more than ever. Our Blessed Mother longs to draw us back to the path of true happiness that her son Jesus Christ opened for us. Her requests, such as to dedicate ourselves to her Immaculate Heart and to pray the rosary every day, only require our hearts to be open, anywhere, at any time.
If we follow the example of Saints Francisco and Jacinta, anyone can become a saint like they did, and thereby find the strength and courage to live and proclaim the faith in today’s increasingly hostile secular environment.
