Fatima at 100 • Fatima Today

World peace is possible. The blessed Virgin Mary shared this hope with three young shepherd children in 1917 in Fatima, Portugal. She even told the children and all of us how this peace could be achieved. This little booklet outlines the ten-step peace plan Our Lady of Fatima urged us to follow and encourages us to build on our relationship with the Lord. The focus is on us doing everything we can to treat everyone and everything around us with love and respect. We are to be light to the world. We aren’t to be concerned about what others are doing wrong but about how we are doing on our own path to Christ.

The steps include:

  1. Honor the Lord
  2. Ask for Forgiveness
  3. Change Our Ways
  4. Embrace Suffering
  5. Just Say, “Yes!”
  6. Get the Word Out
  7. Don’t Be Afraid
  8. Pray Continuously
  9. Mediate on the Rosary
  10. Seek God’s Comfort

Each step is accompanied by a scripture verse, and action response. The scripture verses used here are from the contemporary version of the Bible known as The Message: Catholic/Ecumenical Edition.

Designed for personal reflection and small group use, Fatima at 100 • Fatima Today offers a plan for the Fatima centennial year and for the rest of our lives. Author Mary K. Doyle implores us to take our efforts seriously. With God’s grace and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we are the answer to world peace.
