Lúcia de Jesus Rosa dos Santos, OCD , (March 28, 1907 – February 13, 2005), also known as Lúcia of Fátima and by her religious name Sister Maria Lúcia of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart, was a Portuguese Carmelite nun and one of the three children, including her cousins, Francisco and Jacinta Marto who witnessed the Marian apparitions in Fatima in 1917.
Here is a prayer we have for her intercession.
Most Holy Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, whom we profoundly adore, we thank You for the appearances of the Most Holy Virgin in Fatima which manifested the riches of her Immaculate Heart.
For the infinite merits of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we beg You that for Your greater glory and the good of our souls, You make worthy of glorification before the Holy Church, Sister Lucia, the shepherdess of Fatima. Through her intercession, this grace we ask of You. Amen.
AND a simple message from her
“When lovers are together, they spend hours and hours repeating the same thing: ‘I love you!’ What is missing in the people who think the rosary monotonous is Love; and everything that is not done for love is worthless.”
“The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families… that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.”
“Since we all need to pray, God asks of us, as a kind of daily installment, a prayer which is within our reach: the Rosary, which can be recited either in common or in private, either in church in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament or at home, either with the rest of the family or alone, either when traveling or while walking quietly in the fields. A mother of a family can say the Rosary while she rocks her baby’s cradle or does the housework. Our day has 24 hours in it. It is not asking a great deal to set aside a quarter of an hour for the spiritual life, for our intimate and familiar converse with God.”
