  1. Thanks to Pope Francis for his desire to consecrate his Pontificate to Our Lady of Fatima. Fatima is the desire of so many hearts in the darkest moments in so many lives in the last century. May Our Lady and Our Lord bless his pontificate for the good of humanity. Our Lady of Fatima is always faithful to her promise to humanity. Let us join in our prayers with the Holy Father.
