«Then the Most holy virgin said: “Look, my daughter, at my heart, surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce me every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console me and say that I promise to assist at the hour of death, with graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decade of the Rosary, and keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me.» / Fatima in Lucia’s own words, vol. I, p. 194.
«His mother said to the servants: “Do whatever he tells you!” » / Jn 2,5
