1,000 Rosary Rallies Honor Our Lady of Fatima

On May 11, 2024, thousands of Catholics gathered in prayer and devotion to honor Our Lady of Fatima. The over thousand Rosary Rallies promoted by America Needs Fatima were not merely expressions of faith but also a powerful answer to Our Lady’s urgent plea in 1917: to “pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world.”

Offering public reparation for sins that offend God and bring about suffering, Rally Captains all over the nation heeded Our Lady’s call for a return to prayer and moral conversion.

The First Apparition and its Legacy

On May 13, 1917, three young shepherd children—Jacinta and Francisco Marto and their cousin Lucia dos Santos—witnessed the first of several apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Cova da Iria fields near Fatima, Portugal. Our Lady, appearing radiant and sorrowful, entrusted them with a message of prayer and penance, urging the world to turn away from sin and seek God’s mercy.

A powerful bond formed between the children and the Blessed Mother. Each apparition revealed profound moral truths, including the secrets of the Rosary and a vision of Hell, serving as a stark reminder of the consequences of sin and the urgency of conversion.

Eternal and Natural Law: The Foundation of Morals and Law

At the heart of the Fatima message lies the promise of God’s mercy, made accessible through true humility, sacrifice and the transformative power of prayer. Following in the example of the three shepherd children, Rosary Rally Captains bring the Fatima message into the modern world, uniting Catholics in faith and penance just as Our Lady requested.

Testimonials from Rally Captains

May the immaculate heart of the Most Holy Mary triumph over evil. Amen. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of the rally in honor of Our Lady of Fatima.”—Zulay in Cape Coral, Florida

Charlene’s rally in Amsterdam, New York.

“Seeing these pictures and we only have three to five people at a time, I remember what our Lord says, ‘When three or more gather in my Name, I am with you.’ So, we continue each month and pray for the world and the people in it. We have a shortage of priests, and it’s hard to get them to join us due to prior commitments. We do have people walk by and ask questions, and we hand out rosaries and prayer cards. Please pray for us and with us to pull the community together. God bless.”—Charlene in Amsterdam, New York

Bernadette’s rally in Knox, Indiana.

“We held our Rosary Rally at our new Rosary Garden in our Meditation Park at Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Knox, Indiana. The day was sunny but windy. Due to an earlier storm, electricity was out in parts of our area, which prevented some from attending because they could not get their car out of the garage. Ten of us were in attendance. Fr. Stephen Loncar led our prayers. We followed with a potluck in the church hall. What we lacked in numbers, we made up for in dedication, reverence, great food, and cherished camaraderie.”—Bernadette in Knox, Indiana

“There were just 2 of us standing on the corner in Kernville, California. We got 1 beep in approval for praying for America and no disrespectful actions. It was a hopeful experience for us, and I’m sure some hearts were convicted.”—Antonia and Jesse in Kernville, California

Fatima’s Enduring Call in the Modern World

Over a century later, the message of Fatima remains as relevant as ever. The world continues to grapple with sin, war and moral decay, the very concerns Our Lady expressed to the shepherd children in 1917. Despite these areas of strife, hope remains alive in Fatima.

They serve as a beacon of hope, reminding us that, through sincere piety and repentance, we can obtain peace for ourselves and the world, just as Our Lady promised.

It may never be known in this life how many souls are touched with these Rosary Rallies. Hundreds of thousands pass by the rallies, raising the hope that the seeds of future conversions are planted in their minds and hearts.
