Faithful invited to pray the Rosary for lasting peace

A Catholic priest in Metro Manila has called on parishioners to pray the Rosary daily for the world to achieve lasting peace.

Prof. Carlos Reyes, parish priest of Our Lady of Fatima parish in the city of Mandaluyong, made the appeal on the occasion of the 105th anniversary of the apparition of the Virgin Mary in the Portuguese city of Fatima in Belgium, where Catholics are told that she appeared to three girls and told them the “Three Secrets.” »

The “Three Secrets of Fátima” are a series of apocalyptic visions and prophecies allegedly given to three young Portuguese shepherds, Lúcia Santos and her cousins ​​Jacinta and Francisco Marto, by a Marian apparition, which began on May 13, 1917.

“We are going through troubled times and we must pray the Holy Rosary daily for the intercession of the Blessed Mother to end the global pandemic and the invasion of Ukraine by Russia so that the world has lasting peace. “said the father. Reyes said.

“Let us pray the Rosary daily for it is a powerful prayer”, emphasizing “the urgency for humanity to repent and cease offending God”.
He said that “the message of the Blessed Mother at Fatima 105 years ago relates to current events of what is happening in the world today, such as the war in Ukraine”.

Theologians say crowds gathered at Cova da Iria on October 13, 1917, for what would be Our Lady of Fatima’s last appearance to the three children.

A period of rain earlier in the day caused puddles and mud, which witnesses said dried up completely during the Milagre do Sol (Miracle of the Sun).
