Our Lady of Fatima is the title granted to the Blessed Virgin Mary after she visited three children while herding in Fatima, Portugal.
Holy Mary performed a miracle of making the sun jiggle in the sky under the watch of hundreds of people every time she visited them.
It’s believed that Our Lady taught the children, Blessed Franciso Marto, Jacinta Marto, and Lucia Santos, to pray the Rosary and other prayers. This was to end the then-prevailing war and bring peace into the world.
Since then, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been a prayer icon in the Catholic doctrine, whereby believers trust that she can intercede their request to God. Below are five prayers to Our Lady of Fatima.
