One of my favorite things about being Catholic is the Fatima Message and Our Lady of Fatima. I didn't know much about it until a few years ago when my sister-in-law started a Fatima Family Apostolate group and we started reading books written by Father Fox and joining other families in trying to live a life of holiness.
Our Lady of Fatima teaches us to receive and adore the Blessed Trinity and the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. Our Lady also stressed the importance of the Rosary and how we need to pray it every day (especially as a family) along with living a life of sacrifice and penance.
In learning more about adoration and what it means to "adore the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, true God and true man, in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar" I've found alot of my strength comes from time spent with Our Lord.
So today, try to spend some time adoring Our Lord and to hang out with some friends or family and say a rosary, you'll be glad you did! Our Lady of Fatima, Pray for Us!
