Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima for the Children of the World
O Mary, you freely and lovingly embraced the will of God for you by accepting the call to be the Mother of his Son. With the help of St. Joseph you raised the child Jesus so that he grew in wisdom, age and grace before God and humanity.
You appeared to the children of Fatima, confiding in them, though they be young and unknown, to reveal to the world your message of conversion and peace.
We ask you now, Our Lady of Fatima, to gather all the children of the world into your loving embrace. Grant them God’s gifts of health and peace, of security and love. Help them to know and use the many gifts and talents they have been given for the betterment of the one human race. Inspire them one day to be men and women of peace.
O Lord, through the intercession of your Mother Mary, bless and keep your children. Amen.
