There is a Eucharist pulse in the heart of the Message of Fatima. If the first words of the Angel to the three little shepherds are a call to adoration – My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! –, The Angel will lead the children to the contemplation of the Mystery of God – Most Holy Trinity, I adore You profoundly –, and then introduce them to the essence of the Eucharist Mystery – Take this and drink the Body and the Blood. Hence, it’s mentioned one of the subjects that profoundly mark the Message of Fatima, the request for a theological answer to the merciful action of God, the total offering of self to the Eucharist.
The Eucharist subject is present in the challenge made by the Lady dressed all in white: “are you willing to offer yourselves to God? Are you willing to offer yourselves for the humanity?” In this way, we can see a suggestion of the opening words of Christ: “this cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.” (Lk 22,20). The words of the Lady are a renewed invitation to live from the Eucharist approach of self-giving, unveiled by the Nazarene. And the “yes, we are willing” said by the three little shepherds of Fatima, as first fruits of the message, is the previous signature of a whole life of humble devotion and self-delivery into the hands of God by men. The reparation asked in Fatima is nothing but the participation in the Eucharist Mystery of Christ, in his redeeming mission.
To live a Eucharist life is also at the core of the request for the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. Those sabath will be a sign of redirecting everything and everyone to the mystery of God, through self-giving of every woman and every man. They will be the evocation of the promised deliverance, which is the Heart of God’s eschatological triumph.
