This summary of Our Lady’s message, updated to include the important development of the canonisation of Francisco and Jacinta by Pope Francis on 13th May 2017, explains why we need the message of Fatima more than ever. Our Blessed Mother longs to draw us back to the path of true happiness that her son Jesus Christ opened for us. Her requests, such as to dedicate ourselves to her Immaculate Heart and to pray the rosary every day, only require our hearts to be open, anywhere, at any time.
If we follow the example of Saints Francisco and Jacinta, anyone can become a saint like they did, and thereby find the strength and courage to live and proclaim the faith in today’s increasingly hostile secular environment.

The message of Our Lady of Fatima has the power to convert hearts and transform the face of the earth. But of course it can't bring those blessings to the world if people are ignorant of it. The authors of this little book are true sons of Mary and the Church, and can therefore be trusted to expound the message in a spirit of Catholic fidelity, and with an eloquence that enlightens and attracts. They supply the reader with prayers, novenas, and hymns to help him grow in love of Our Lady, and to live out her Fatima message with their families day by day.
