This is a great year to begin a First Saturdays devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Next month, on May 13, 2017, we will celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the first apparition of our Blessed Mother to Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, three young children in Fatima, Portugal, as the first World War raged and ravaged Europe. What the children heard and saw seems like an old story, but it is still also a very new one because we have yet to properly respond. I have been very interested in reading about Our Lady if Fatima again, considering her message anew from our vantage point of one hundred years. The EWTN website at ewtn.com/fatima is a wonderful resource for information on the anniversary, history and meaning of Our Lady of Fatima.
