The Angel of Peace and the Lady who appeared in Iria, i.e., Peace, in Fatima

angel of fatima

[Lucia writes:] We began to see, in the distance, above the trees that stretched to the east, a light whiter than snow in the form of a young man, quite transparent, and as brilliant as crystal in the rays of the sun. As he came near we were able to see his features. We were astonished and absorbed and we said nothing to one another. And then he said:

Do not be afraid. I am the angel of peace. Pray with me.

He knelt, bending his forehead to the ground. With a supernatural impulse we did the same, repeating the words we heard him say:

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love You.

After repeating this prayer three times the angel rose and said to us:

Pray in this way. The hearts of Jesus and Mary are ready to listen to you.

[Later that year:] The angel calling himself the Angel of Peace held a chalice over which was suspended a Host. Drops of the Precious Blood fell from the Host into the chalice. The angel prostrated himself on the ground before the Host and Chalice, and repeated the act of reparation three times. He then administered Holy Communion to the children saying,

“Eat and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men. Make reparation for their crimes and console Our Lord.”

[Then there is this:] An Act of Reparation From the Angel of of Peace at Fatima:

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore You profoundly and I offer You 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 indifferences by which He Himself is offended. And by the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of poor sinners.

[So, Fatima is very much about Eucharistic Reparation. On 13 May 1917, Our Lady of Fatima, who is “Our Lady of the Rosary” had this conversation with the children:]

“Will you offer yourselves to God, and bear all the sufferings He sends you? In atonement for all the sins that offend Him? And for the conversion of sinners?” “Oh, we will, we will!” “Then you will have a great deal to suffer, but the grace of God will be with you and will strengthen you.”

Lucia relates that as the Lady pronounced these words, she opened her hands, and we were bathed in a heavenly light that appeared to come directly from her hands. The light’s reality cut into our hearts and our souls, and we knew somehow that this light was God, and we could see ourselves embraced in it. By an interior impulse of grace we fell to our knees, repeating in our hearts:

“Oh, Holy Trinity, we adore You. My God, my God, I love You in the Blessed Sacrament.”

Then the Lady said:

“Say the Rosary every day, to bring peace to the world and an end to the war.”

[The Angel of Peace prepared the children well for the apparitions of Our Lady who appeared in the Cova of Iria, that is, of Peace. The messages are consistent, profound, drawing one in reverence before, through our Eucharistic Lord.]

    I’m just reading ‘A pathway under the gaze of Mary’ to coincide with the centenary. They responded so beautifully and completely to Our Lady’s request to suffer for sinners. Years ago I read Sr. Lucia’s own memoir of the events and was so moved by these children, especially Francisco, who didn’t hear the words in the apparitions, he learnt them from the girls. Maybe that’s because I have sons and I was very touched by his example. May St. Francisco & St. Jacinta pray for us to be more like them in our love for the Holy Eucharist and for souls.

    One of the biggest of personal spiritual “breakthroughs” that I have experienced, by the grace of God, was when I began to include the simple words “Jesus, I love you.” It took great courage for me to say those words, at that time, because I wanted it to be true, in every sense.
    If saying “I love you” to another human being is hard, then you can imagine how terrified I was of saying those words to Jesus, Who would read my heart! I didn’t want it to be like Judas’ “kiss.”
    A good and Holy priest had unknowingly prepared me for that act of faith, hope, love, when I observed him counseling another man in our prayer group. He said:
    “Now repeat after me, this prayer; don’t worry if you are not sure if you really mean them, just give the words as much truth as is within you.”
    This enthralled me, emboldened me, and consoled me. So, In the privacy of my bedroom, in the dark, as I lay, yearning for God, I took that big step and said, with great difficulty, those wonderful words that now easily pass my lips always and everywhere, both aloud and in my heart.
    Jesus, I love you!

    Being a woman it is very easy to say “Jesus I love you!” This is in my opinion the best thing about being a woman.
