Devotion to angels. The angel of Fatima said to the shepherd children: ‘Pray this way’. Night prayer 18 January 2020
“Do not be afraid. I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me “-” Pray! Pray a lot! The most holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary have designs of mercy on you. Constantly offer prayers and sacrifices to the Most High ”.
Before the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima, the three shepherd children Lucia, Francesco and Giacinta (Lúcia de Jesus dos Santos, and his cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto), all residing in the village of Aljustrel, parish of Fátima had three visions of the Angel of Portugal , or Angel of Peace, in the Loca do Cabeço. In these three apparitions, which took place between spring and summer 1916, the Angel taught the three shepherd children of Fatima a PRAYER of adoration and intercession:
“My God I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you, I ask you for forgiveness for all those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you. Most Holy Trinity, Father Son and Holy Spirit, I adore you deeply and I offer you the precious Blood Body Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the earth, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences with which he is offended. And for the infinite merits of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and for the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I ask you for the conversion of poor sinners “.
We can appreciate the efficacy of this prayer correctly when we conceive this prayer as the fulfillment of the two greatest commandments, of love for God and neighbor, from which “the whole Law and the prophets” derives (Mt 22:39). In the same way Saint Paul teaches: “The whole law finds its fullness in one precept: you will love your neighbor as yourself” (Gal 5:14; cf Rom 13: 8. 10). If we understand something of this truth, then we will not be surprised more than the almost illiterate children, by means of this prayer who recited for whole hours, did very well in virtue and holiness in a very short time.
But the Angel not only gives us a simple formula of prayer for the fulfillment of this commandment, so that we can carry it out for ourselves. What the Angel craves is that we believe with him, that we LOVE JESUS EUCHARIST WITH HIM. Just as our Guardian Angel so desires, that we kneel and pray with him. If we do this, the Lord will be able to fulfill one of the most beautiful promises, “where two or three are gathered in My Name, I am among them” (Mt 20) .loading …
We can recite the prayer indicated by the Angel of Fatima many times during the day as a prayer together with our Angel and thus walk in the presence of God.
