CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF THE FATIMA APPARITION
One hundred years ago on the 13th of May 1917 Our Blessed Mother appeared to Lucia, Jacinta and Francesco and asked prayers for peace in the world as the First World War was raging on. That peace she asked for is still very much needed in our communities, towns, countries; between religions, political organizations, etc.
I am fortunate to be in Fatima on this special day and so I join other pilgrims led by Pope Francis to ask the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the healing of our dear country Nigeria, afflicted by multidimensional problems. O Lord give us peace, unity and developmental progress.
