What connection exists between Fatima and Garabandal ?
In the letter of the Holy Father Pio that was sent to Conchita, one of the visionaries of Garabandal, the following was reported: "... I send you a copy of the Holy Rosary of Fatima, which the Virgin told me to send you. This third was dictated by the Blessed Virgin and must be propagated for the salvation of sinners and the preservation of humanity from the worst punishments ... "
In fatima, from May to October 1917, three children had apparitions of Our Lady on the 13th of each month. It was a period of world war and the requests of the Mother of Jesus were addressed to the whole world:
- prayer (especially the rosary),
- conversion (leaving habitual sin life),
- love for the Eucharist (adoration and Eucharistic reparation),
- reparation (penances, prayers and sacrifices for the conversion of sinners),
- devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
- consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
"Do not be afraid. Pray with me. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications ... Pray a lot! Offer the Most High prayers and sacrifices constantly"
"Of all that you can, offer a sacrifice to the Lord in an act of reparation for the sins with which He is offended and in supplication for the conversion of sinners ... Above all, accept and bear with submission the suffering that the Lord sends you. "
The Angel of Peace
"Pray the rosary every day to achieve peace for the world and an end to the war."
"Sacrifice yourselves for sinners, and say many times and especially whenever you make any sacrifice:" O Jesus, it is for your love, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary ".
"Pray, pray a lot and make sacrifices for sinners, as many souls go to hell, because there is no one to sacrifice and ask for them. "
"You have seen hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wants to establish devotion to My Immaculate Heart in the world."
"If they respond to my requests, Russia will be converted and they will have peace; if not, it will spread its errors throughout the world, promoting wars and persecutions to the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, several nations will be annihilated. Finally, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, which will be converted, and the world will be granted some time of peace. "
"Do not offend God Our Lord anymore, who is already very offended."
Our Lady of Fátima
