My God, I believe, I adore, I trust, and I love thee! I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love thee.


With the Blessed Sacrament suspended in the air, the angel at Fatima prostrated himself, and recited the prayer:

O most Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I adore thee profoundly.

I offer thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ—present in all the tabernacles of the world—in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended.

By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.


This prayer stresses that most beautiful truth: that the all-powerful, all-loving God is upon the altar at every Catholic Mass.

Most Holy Trinity, I adore You! My God, my God, I love You in the Most Blessed Sacrament.


Our Lady taught the children a prayer to be said when they would have something to offer up to God … such as some suffering, or an act contrary to what they wanted to do but which was necessary in order to please God.

O my Jesus, it is for love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and for the conversion of poor sinners.


Our Lady asked that the following prayer be inserted after each decade of the Rosary:

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins; save us from the fires of hell; lead all souls into Heaven, especially those who are in most need of thy mercy.

Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart

O Mary, Virgin most powerful and Mother of mercy, Queen of Heaven and Refuge of sinners, we consecrate ourselves to thy Immaculate Heart.

We consecrate to thee our very being and our whole life; all that we have, all that we love, all that we are.

To thee we give our bodies, our hearts and our souls; to thee we give our homes, our families and our country.

We desire that all that is in us and around us may belong to thee and may share in the benefits of thy motherly blessing.

And that this act of consecration may be truly efficacious and lasting, we renew this day at thy feet the promises of our Baptism and our first Holy Communion.

We pledge ourselves to profess courageously and at all times the truths of our holy Faith, and to live as befits Catholics who are duly submissive to all the directions of the Pope and the Bishops in communion with him.

We pledge ourselves to keep the commandments of God and His Church, in particular to keep holy the Lord’s Day.

We likewise pledge ourselves to make the consoling practices of the Christian religion, and above all, Holy Communion, an integral part of our lives, in so far as we shall be able so to do.

Finally, we promise thee, O glorious Mother of God and loving Mother of men, to devote ourselves whole-heartedly to the spreading of devotion to thy Immaculate Heart, in order to hasten and assure, through the sovereignty of thy Immaculate Heart, the coming of the kingdom of the Sacred Heart of thy adorable Son, in our own hearts and in those of all men, in our country and in all the world, as in heaven, so on earth.
