Visiting the Sanctuary of Fatima in 2010, Benedict XVI affirmed that it “would be wrong if we thought that the prophetic mission of Fatima is over” and noted 2017‘s upcoming centennial.
In turn, Pope Francis has devoted his pontificate to Our Lady of Fatima and has confirmed he will travel to Fatima for the 100th anniversary of the Marian apparitions. He will take advantage of that occasion to canonize the two younger seers, Jacinta and Francisco Marto.
The prophecies of Fatima illuminate the last century, which was one of the most tragic in human history with its two World Wars, large scale genocide, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction with which to destroy not only lives but also the entire planet, and the rapid emergence of technologies that are transforming the world and humankind. In the war against evil, the Almighty sent the most powerful Virgin to help the Church and all of humanity to win against “Satan loosed from his chains” and to bring the world an era of peace.
Mary’s plan, which began at Fatima and continues with her presence in Medjugorje, is in full swing and is realized to the extent that we respond to her call and became “witnesses of the faith”, “apostles of love”, and ” bearers of peace”. Fatima’s centennial should be an opportunity for a profound spiritual renewal for all, in order to be “apostles of Mary” not only in name but also and above all through the witness of our lives.
Yours truly, Fr. Livio
