I was born in Azores, a cluster of nine Portuguese islands in the North Atlantic, and went to the mainland at age 19, in 1973, to serve in the Portuguese Air Force. I visited Fatima in 1975, served at one mass and prayed at the apparitions’ site. I had  the pleasure to meet recently an American senior citizen who befriended and visited regularly Sister Lucia.

The Holy Spirit asked me today to write about Our Lady of Fatima.  The first apparition of the Blessed Mother in Fatima, Portugal, occurred on May 13, 1917, and the video presents the apparition and its backdrop.

Her message was Conversion, Penance and Prayer, which are necessary today as they were in 1917. The Virgin Mary informed the end or WWI, but if humanity did not pray and convert a major war would follow.  Humanity did not follow the Blessed Mother’s advice, so the Almighty Father chastised humanity with WWII.  Some American soldiers and survivors of Nazi concentration camps are alive and attest to our generation of Christ’s Second Coming about the atrocities of WWII.  Humanity “GO TO CHURCH!” to avert WWIII.
