Holy Father found hope in Fatima

THE Holy Father today described the hope within the  ‘secrets’ contained in Our Lady’s apparitions to the three shepherd children to the 15,000 people present in St Peter’s Square.

“The demanding yet comforting message Our Lady left at Fatima is full of hope,” the Pope Benedict XVI said.

The Pope made the remarks while talking about the highlights of his recent to Portugal which he called was ‘unforgettable.’

He encouraged all lay faithful to evangelise the places where they live and work and plant the seeds of hope.

He added that the Mother of God calls Catholics to a life of ‘prayer, penance and conversion, which surpass the threats, dangers, and horrors of history.” She invites us to have hope ‘in God’s merciful love and trust in his saving plan, which triumphs over the threats and calamities of history,’ he said.
