Rorate Caeli
The ninetieth anniversary of the Apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima takes place today. It undoubtedly is, with its vehement plea for conversion and penance, the most prophetic of modern apparitions. Let us ask the Mother of the Church, who knows the sufferings and hopes of mankind, to protect our homes and our communities.
