Documents on the Message of Fatima from the Former International President,
Prof. Américo Pablo López-Ortiz


A Sign of Hope

Modern societies, so much concerned with economics, should learn that authentic spirituality is essential to human progress and fulfillment. As we go into the doctrine of “the economy of grace” we learn that the Good Lord gives away superabundant graces to guide humanity to happiness and perfection, to make possible peace and spiritual joy, to cleanse the sins of the world and their terrible consequences of death, suffering, sickness and all sorts of miseries. But those who do not have faith are incapable of receiving the benefits of such treasures of grace and mercy.

Our Lady of Fatima

There is a great sign of hope: Our Lady of Fatima revealed in her Apparitions the great role of children in our times in the Divine Plan for the salvation of many souls. When children come together to pray, as the three little shepherds of Fatima did, in the first prayer cell of the world, great things happened. The formidable obstacles created by evilness, hatred, and violence crumble as they are confronted with the pure, simple faith of children in God’s love, grace, and mercy.

Our children must come to our tabernacles to visit Jesus Christ present in a real way, waiting for them to transform them into His image so that they will become light for
the world, salt for their families, and happiness for our entire societies. It is through the meditative prayer of adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament that the Kingdom of God will come to earth, transforming the lives of our entire societies as they come closer to God.

Try your best effort and do as much as you can to bring children to Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament and your life will be full of meaning and happiness. May the Good Lord through the Immaculate Heart of Mary preserve our dear children from the perils of our present societies as our children develop themselves into other Christs and Marys and with them their dear families and the adult world.
