Lighting the Flame: Children of Fatima
What a gift the children of Fatima are to each of us! It is such a blessing listening to Father Prentice teach our lower division about Fatima each week through his homilies at Mass. During chapel time this week, second grade students spent time reflecting on how they can be like Francisco and console the heart of Jesus. They came up with examples of sacrifices they can make as well as acts of kindness they can share with the world. Last week Father Prentice taught the students another one of the Fatima prayers, and here it is for your families to recite at home. I love watching how the Holy Spirit guides the students hearts. One of my favorite responses from second grade this week on how they could console the heart of Jesus was said with a giant smile, “Go to Reconciliation!” We can learn so much from our younger students about the gift of the Sacraments, and the grace Jesus wants to pour in each of our hearts.
Most Holy Trinity,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
I adore Thee profoundly.
I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul
and Divinity of Jesus Christ,
present in all the tabernacles of the world,
in reparation for the outrages,
sacrileges and indifferences whereby He is offended.
And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart
and the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.
