"I loved seeing the Angel,
but I loved still more seeing Our Lady.  
What I loved most of all was to see Our Lord in that light
from Our Lady which penetrated our hearts.
I Love God so much!
But He is very sad because of so many sins!
We must never commit any sins again."

In 1917, Our Blessed Mother appeared
to three young shepherds
(Ven. Lucia, Bl. Jacinta, and Bl. Francisco)
in Fatima, Portugal.

To prepare them for Our Lady's apparition,
the Angel of Peace appeared to them in 1916.

The Angel taught them the following prayer of adoration:
“My God,
I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You!
I ask pardon of You for those who
do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and
do not love You.

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
I adore You profoundly, and I offer You
the most precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity
of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world,
in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference
with which He Himself is offended.
And, through the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart,
and the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
I beg of You the conversion of poor sinners.”
