FAQs

The Confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima is a world-wide family of Catholics who are dedicated to bringing about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary as soon as possible and are dedicated to spending the rest of their lives living out the call of Our Lady of Fatima and in doing penance for poor sinners and reparation to Her Immaculate Heart.

A confraternity is generally a Christian voluntary association of lay people created for the purpose of promoting special works of Christian charity or piety, and approved by the Church hierarchy.

The Confraternity is for everyone who wants to live out what Our Lady of Fatima called us to do and who wants Her Immaculate Heart to Triumph throughout the entire world beginning with allowing Her to reign in their own hearts first.

Any member properly formed can promote it in whichever manner possible. Feel free to own the process of getting the word out about it. Tell your parish priest, if he is amicable to it, youth group leaders, school, and colleges.

To promote it, we must tell them what the point of the Confraternity is – to bring about the reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, what the daily and monthly obligations are and beyond that encourage the First Saturday devotion.

It is very simple, there are four things to do each day:

Wear a scapular Do a simple act of penance
Pray the Rosary
Say the Prayer for the Holy Father to Consecrate Russia

Then once per month, go to Confession.If you want to do more, the next thing would be to make the Five First Saturdays. This is what Our Lady asked for at Fatima. It really is crucial to bringing about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We don’t include it in the obligations for the regular members because many have already done the Five First Saturdays. The obligations are what we all can do whether we have done the Five First Saturdays or not. They are what we need to do for the rest of our lives to do our part to bring about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.For advanced devotees of Our Lady and leaders of the Confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima, we also recommend making the Consecration according to St. Louis de Montfort once per year.

Really depends on your state in life and you might ask a holy priest for confirmation.

The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.

We are 36 years passed the consecration that Pope John Paul II did in Rome. A fair question would be, “How is Russia converted? She is still spreading her errors of communisim.” and “Where is this period of peace and where is the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary?”

Bishop Schneider is right on this point of the need for the Consecration.

This is what Bishop Schneider has to say:

Sr. Lucia did say that Pope John Paul II’s consecration “was heard in heaven,” but it was not the consecration that Our Lady asked for at Fatima. Our Lady explicitly asked for the consecration of Russia. When Pope John Paul II did the consecration, he did not use the word Russia at all in the consecration. The consecration that he did was pleasing to God and Our Lady, but because he did not mention Russia in the act of consecration, we still wait and pray for the Pope to do it.
