Third apparition of Our Lady of Fatima
July 13th ~ 1917
Our Lady set the scene and gave the children — and us — a way to help others so they would not end up as part of the vision she was going to show them next, a vision of hell.
“Make sacrifices for sinners and say many times,
especially whenever you make some sacrifice:
“O Jesus, it is for the love of you, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the
Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
ANGEL OF PEACE AND SACRIFICES
Two months after his first visit, the Angel of Peace appeared for the second time. The Little Shepherds were playing on the stone slabs of a garden well when suddenly, they saw the Angel.
He said to them:
What are you doing? You must pray! Pray a lot! The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs on you. You must constantly offer your prayers and sacrifices to GOD, the Most High.
Lucia asked the Angel, “How are we to make sacrifices?”
The Angel said,
Make everything you can a sacrifice. Offer them to GOD as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and to ask for the conversion of sinners. In this way you will bring peace to your country. I am the Angel of Portugal. Bear and accept with submission the sufferings GOD will send you.
