Our Lady of Medjugorje said:


“Pray…so that with your help everything I wanted to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima may be fulfilled…”
August 25, 1991


Sr. Lucia, the visionary from Fatima, said that: “The final battle between the Lord and the reign of satan will be about Marriage and the Family.”

…this includes your family…


Our Lady of Medjugorje is here to fulfill what She began at Fatima which will be a victory for the family. Come and pray in the Bedroom of Apparitions on the 100th anniversary of Fatima, May 13, 2017, and receive a Plenary Indulgence*, for yourself, your spouse and your family. Consecrate your family in a place where the Holy Virgin Mary of Medjugorje came and spoke words, leaving behind the fragrance of Her holiness, and witness for every family. For those who cannot go to Fatima to participate in the 100th Anniversary, most in the continental U.S. are with 2-3 days driving time of Caritas.

* One of the three ways offered to obtain the plenary indulgence as proclaimed by Pope Francis this anniversary year of Fatima follows:

Prayer before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima—The second way applies to “the pious faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any Church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October (2017), and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary.” This can be done anywhere in the world.
