Day 3 - Novena to Our Lady of Fatima for Conversion

Day 3 Novena Reflection

Let us pray for an authentic renewal of Marian Piety. One which turns the whole world to Jesus Christ. After all, that is the greatest desire of the Mother of the Lord. She always points us to Jesus. She is the model disciple and the first evangelizer.

An early Church Father, Gregory of Nyssa (fourth century) once wrote:

What came about in bodily form in Mary, the fullness of the Godhead shining through Christ in the Blessed Virgin, takes place in a similar way in every soul that has been made pure.

The Lord does not come in bodily form, for we no longer know Christ according to the flesh, but he dwells in us spiritually and the Father takes up his abode with him, the Gospel tells us. In this way, the child Jesus is born in each one of us. (Gregory of Nyssa, On Virginity)

The Catholic Catechism tells us:

Since the Virgin Mary's role in the mystery of Christ and the Spirit has been treated; it is fitting now to consider her place in the mystery of the Church. The Virgin Mary is acknowledged and honored as being truly the Mother of God and of the redeemer.

She is clearly the mother of the members of Christ since she has by her charity joined in bringing about the birth of believers in the Church, who are members of its head. Mary, Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church (CCC 963).

We have a Mother in this eternal family called the Church. Mary, the Mother of the Lord Jesus.

The pastoral admonitions of Pope Francis to the faithful who gathered to commemorate the centenary of the Apparitions at Fatima need to be heard by the faithful around the world.

Mary points to Jesus Christ, the One Savior of the World.

So, true Marian Piety and devotion is always Christological - it leads us into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.

Let us pray for a New Evangelization of the Church.

Let us pray for a renewal of true Marian devotion.

Let us pray for and help to lead a new missionary age for the Church leading to the conversion to Jesus Christ of every Nation

Our Lady of Fatima Pray for us.

Oh, my Jesus, forgive us our sin, save us from the fires of hell,

Lead all souls to heaven

Especially those most in need of your Mercy


Novena Prayer Asking the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima

Beloved Father, through the life, death and resurrection of your only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ, we have become your adopted sons and daughters.

Through Baptism we are now members of His Body, the Church, which is Your family.

Our Savior Jesus taught us that "whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother."

We thank you that promise includes each one of us.

As members of the family of Jesus we now turn to you in prayer, as OUR FATHER, ABBA.

Before your Son and our Savior gave up the last drop of His Sacred blood - and breathed his last breath - to set us free from sin and death -

He turned to His Beloved Mother at the foot of the Cross.

And said

'Woman, behold your son.'

Then he said to the disciple whom he loved with a special affection, John, and said,

'Behold your mother'" (John 19: 26-27).

Throughout the Church's history and Tradition great theologians, mystics, popes and saints have all viewed John as representing each one of us.

So, the last gift Jesus gave to us - before giving Himself fully - was His Mother



to be our Mother.

The Mother of Jesus is the Mother of His Church -

and our Mother.

Father, in your loving plan of salvation, you promised through the prophets of Israel that a Virgin would conceive - and bear a Son - who would be called Immanuel, God with us (Isaiah 7:14, Matt. 1:23)

You taught us to hope for salvation.

You fulfilled your promise. You gave us the complete fulfillment of that hope

As the Apostle Paul taught, in the fullness of time you chose that woman, born under the law to redeem us - and make us your sons and daughters. (Gal. 4:4)

Jesus Christ the Lord

The humble Virgin whom you chose is Mary.

Her "Yes" - her FIAT, brought heaven to earth and earth to Heaven.

She responded to the message of your angel and all of human history was changed.

She is now a part of that great cloud of witnesses gathered in your communion of love.

And she prays, for each one of us, in the Body of Her Son, the Church.

She participates in His ongoing redemptive mission, to bring all men and women to faith in Jesus Christ, holding a special place of honor and veneration.

She is a Messenger of His Mercy, calling the whole world to turn away from sin and turn toward Jesus -

to be converted, made holy by being made new in Him.

In that ongoing role in your plan of salvation, she has appeared to some whose hearts are simple, childlike and open to the continued work of your Holy Spirit.

In her appearance to the three children of Fatima, she warned of what would occur if men, women and Nations made the wrong choice

refusing to repent,

refusing to turn away from sin and turn toward Jesus Christ.

But always with the goal of repentance and conversion.

Like Her Son, who said "Let the children come to me", (Matt 19:4),

His Mother Mary often appears to children.

We believe that she appeared to Lucia, Jacinto and Francisco in the fields outside of Fatima Portugal in 1917 at a pivotal time in history.

She gave them a series of messages, accompanied by a miracle, which continue to inspire and move men, women and Nations,

to conversion to Jesus Christ.

Oh, how we need sincere, heartfelt and life changing repentance and conversion today.

Blessed are You among women
And blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus
