“Throughout history, some level of unrest has existed. Since the creation of humanity and the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, we’ve argued our differences, often to extreme outcomes.
No one can deny that any pockets of peace our planet is currently experiencing are isolated and fragile. The extent of violence seen globally is shameful and against God’s will. Economic disparity, religious conflicts, racial and gender discrimination, sexual identity issues, substance abuse, greed, jealousy, and vengefulness are global flash points. At any moment, these issues can, and do spark firestorms harming and claiming innocent lives.
The Virgin Mary says it doesn’t have to be this way. World peace is possible and Mary explained how it could be achieved a century ago. She clearly spelled out a plan in 1917 in Fatima, Portugal through a series of apparitions to three young shepherd children: ten-year-old Lucia dos Santos, nine-year old Francisco Marto, and seven-year old Jacinta Marto . . .
Mary gave specific instructions to use through the children, but overall her point was to pray, and to pray unceasingly. In particular, she told them to Pray the rosary every day. – Excerpt from the booklet, “Fatima at 100. Fatima Today.”
