In a few days, we will encounter Our Lady of Fatima’s 100th year Anniversary. Our Lady of Fatima has been a dear friend of mine who has protected me from myself. She is truly a lovely mother to all of us. She wants us to enjoy the ever lasting happiness of Heaven starting on earth by penance, prayer, and devotion to her Immaculate Heart.
“Men must amend their lives, and ask pardon for their sins. . . . They must no longer offend Our Lord, Who is already so much offended.”
We don’t need to live in monastery to live out the calling of the Fatima’s message, no we can do it right in our very home.
“Many persons,” Sr. Lucia explained, “feeling that the word penance implies great austerities, and not feeling that they have the strength for great sacrifices, become discouraged and continue a life of lukewarmness and sin.” Then she said Our Lord explained to her: “The sacrifice required of every person is the fulfillment of his duties in life and the observance of My law. This is the penance that I now seek and require.”
Eight years ago in May, Hair Bows 4 Life was created out of inspiration from the Holy Spirit and in honor of Our Blessed Mother.
