To Heavenly Peace
The Fatima Prayer was brought about when Mary appeared to three shepherd children during May 13th through October 13th 1917 in Fatima, Portugal.
The Mother of Jesus' purpose for these visits was to save souls from Hell and to warn us of the coming tragedies that would happen if we didn't repent and change our ways.
During the July 13th appearance, Mary showed the children a vision of Hell. Mary told them, "Pray, pray very much because many souls go to Hell."
Lucia, the oldest of the three children described hell as a "sea of fire in which we saw the souls in human forms, men and women, burning, shouting, and crying in despair."
Mary said to the children, "You have seen Hell where sinners go when they dont repent."
Hell is a real place and this dogma is referred to more than 100 times in the Bible
And if thy right eye scandalize thee, pluck it out and cast it from thee. For it is expedient for thee that one of thy members should perish, rather than that thy whole body be cast into hell. And if thy right hand scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is expedient for thee that one of thy members should perish, rather than that thy whole body be cast into hell.
And fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell.
A dogma must be accepted as truth.
Mary wanted to remind us of the so-called Four Last Things:
If you keep in mind that these four last things are just as certain as death and taxes, surely you will strive to live a holier life so that you will make it to Heaven.
The Catholic Rosary prayers will help you live a more holy life.
After showing the children Hell, Mary expressly asked for the Fatima prayer to be recited.
She said, "Each time you say the Rosary, My children, say after each decade, O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need'."
This has become known as "The Fatima Prayer".
