The Angel of Peace

Prior to Mary’s apparitions to three shepherd children, Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta in Fatima, Portugal in 1917, an angel appeared to them. The children described the angel as male, about 14/15 years of age, pure white, and transparent. He said he was The Angel of Peace.

The Angel prepared the way for Mary’s apparitions in Fatima by teaching the children a quick, little prayer to honor God.

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.

Adoring God starts with words like this. Our prayer doesn’t have to be complicated or sophisticated. Speaking simply from within is how we open ourselves so that God’s light may shine through us and reflect that light on others. It’s how we allow God’s peace to fill our souls and those we touch.
