His Holiness Pope Francis will consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on 13th October at the Vatican. The Pope has requested that the original statue of Our Lady of Fatima be brought to the Vatican for the celebration. Pope Francis will welcome the statue to St Peter’s Square during an evening prayer service in an all-night vigil concluding with the Rosary and Mass. Pope Francis will consecrate the world to Mary during the event.
Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three shepherd children in the village of Fatima in Portugal in 1917. She warned of violent trials in the twentieth century if the world did not make reparation for sins. She urged prayer and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
