Our Loving Mother's Anniversary Message
"My dear children, in the peace of my Son, Jesus, I greet you. "Peace [she paused], peace will not come upon the world unless you return to God. "I have come to deliver an urgent plea. The urgent call is for all of mankind to return to God now. Our hearts are grievously offended by the sins of ungrateful souls all over the world. "I came to Fatima and I asked for reparation. Again I come and I seek willing souls to make reparation. "Please dear children, you must stop offending God. I have warned you of wars, of natural disasters, famine, droughts, floods, epidemics and suffering of every kind and you fail to understand that God wants you to amend your ways. "Pray as you have never prayed before. Pray children, pray." There was a period of silence as the Blessed Mother spoke to Nancy privately. Nancy was not to reveal this part of the message. The Blessed Mother then continued with her anniversary message. "My children, the further you walk from God, the more you become a slave. Your very freedom is being taken from you. Take to heart these words and return to God. "Thank you for your prayers and sacrifices. As you make the Sign of the Cross, I will depart." The Blessed Mother then explained that she would bless everything that the pilgrims brought with them and that her hands will be outstretched over her children as graces fall.
