The Angel of Portugal appeared three times in 1916 to the little shepherds of Fatima to prepare them for the apparitions of the Blessed Mother in 1917.
The angel taught the children the following prayer:
“My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you!
I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you.”
I have learned this prayer in Sunday School. I was born in Portugal, visited Fatima and immigrated to the USA on June 1976, at age 21.
“Bear and accept with patience the sufferings God will send you,” recommended the angel to the children. God prepares his servants for important divine missions through suffering.”
