Resolutions for 2016 to become a true "Apostle of Fatima"
The year 2016 is marked by two very particular events: the year of Divine Mercy and the solemn preparation to the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima and the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the MI. Our thoughts and meditations should often revolve around these realities: the INFINITE MERCY OF GOD offered to the poor sinners for their conversion and sanctification.
Allow me to suggest to you special resolutions to take this year, to draw abundantly from the fountain of God's infinite Mercy.
a) If possible, every day for a few minutes and at least one hour a week, to read or listen to profound texts, articles, books about the message and spirituality of Fatima (you will find abundant literature in> www.fatima.org/resources/books.asp),
b) Read and meditate the texts about Fatima published in section Apparitions of Our Lady / Fatima at least 3 times, if possible on each Saturday (Day of Our Lady):
a) Daily, as often as possible, say ejaculatory prayers for the conversion of sinners, especially: "Jesus, Mary, I love You, save souls."
b) Daily, if possible at least three times, the prayer of the Angel of Fatima.

c) Daily Rosary in the intentions of Our Lady of Fatima.
d) If possible, on the 13th of each month, fasting in the intentions of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (if that day is Sunday or feast of obligation, defer the fasting to the previous or following day).
e) Participate in all first Saturday devotions (Holy Communion, Confession during the month, Rosary, mediation on the 15 mysteries of the Rosary, in the spirit of reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart).
Zealous participation in the apostolate of the MI (distributing the Miraculous Medal, leaflets etc.)
If you try to practice these resolutions, you can be very sure, that the Immaculate Heart will accomplish in you Her promise in a very special manner this year of 2016: "My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge, and the way that leads you to God".
