"The Call" - The message of
Fatima is a call to prayer, pray in our
homes, pray as a family, prayer from our hearts. This call is to
families of ALL countries, of ALL races, of ALL religions.
"The Family" - Praying together
as a family inspires family unity,
peace within our homes, peace in our hearts, and peace in the world.

in 1917 to the visionaries. The Blessed Mother Mary's Immaculate Heart,
the Child Jesus blessing the world, as well as Saint Joseph blessing
The Child Jesus is holding the Rosary where children are depicted
reaching heaven through the prayer of the Rosary. Beneath the
is the world, families, children, elderly, handicapped and essentially
the whole world.
Fatima Portugal is represented by the image of the Basilica of Our Lady
of Fatima, by the cobblestones walkways, to the far left the silhouette
of the olive tree; the tree under which the children sat, awaiting the
coming of the Blessed Mother. That tree remains yet today in the
Da Iria. You will also notice the lighted candles - which represent the
nightly prayer vigils at Fatima. As well as, the rosaries and
occasional umbrellas that Fatima pilgrims might carry during their time
Sister Lucia the only living visionary, she is holding the pictures of
Saint Jacinta and Saint Francisco. His Holiness Pope John Paul II
