Wednesday, May 13, 2015 Our Lady of Fatima

Acts, Chapter 19, verse 17
When this became known to all the Jews and Greeks who lived in Ephesus, fear fell upon them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in great esteem.

In Paul’s time there were traveling Jewish’s exorcists that were not of the faith but attempted to remove demons in Jesus’ name and the demons said to the Jewish exorcist, “Jesus I recognize, Paul I know, but who are you?” and then attacked them. “So overpowered them that they fled naked and wounded from that house.” (Acts 19:13-16)

Today is the Feast of the first vision at Fatima. At first the church was very cautious in regards to the miracle at Fatima. Traditionally the church is very slow to recognize miracles and not be like these Jewish exorcists because of our fear of the Lord and the great esteem we have for His name. It was years before the church recognized and honored the miracles that happened there. The message of Fatima is threefold; 1) Pray 2) Sacrifice 3) Rosary.
