Francisco And Jacinta Marto Are Now Saints


Pope Francis on Saturday 13, May 2017 officially declared Francisco and Jacinta Marto saints of the Catholic Church in front of hundreds of thousands of pilgrims at Fatima, Portugal

FROM CATHOLIC NEWS AGENCY
Francisco, 11, and Jacinta, 10, are the youngest non-martyrs to be beatified in the history of the Church. The brother and sister, who tended to their families’ sheep with their cousin Lucia Santo in the fields of Fatima, Portugal, witnessed the apparitions of Mary, now commonly known as Our Lady of Fatima.

During the first apparition, which took place May 13, 1917, Our Lady asked the three children to say the Rosary and to make sacrifices, offering them for the conversion of sinners. The children did, praying often, giving their lunch to beggars and going without food themselves. They offered up their daily crosses and even refrained from drinking water on hot days.

In October 1918, Francisco and Jacinta became seriously ill with the Spanish flu. Our Lady appeared to them and said she would to take them to heaven soon.

Bed-ridden, Francisco requested his first Communion. The following day, Francisco died, April 14, 1919. Jacinta suffered a long illness as well. She was eventually transferred to a Lisbon hospital and operated for an abscess in her chest, but her health did not improve. She died Feb. 20, 1920.

Pope John Paul II beatified Francisco and Jacinta May 13, 2000, on the 83rd anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady at Fatima, teaching us that even young children can become saints.

Magnificent! Such a lovely news I just read this morning. The historic episode of the 1917 apparition is a great story ever told. I remember growing up as a child how I loved those moments we were been taught the apparition story.

It's the centenary anniversary of Our Lady appearance in Fatima. I read the story when I was thirteen and, I was totally fascinated at how the three children brought redemption to their community. It's been more than five years since I read the story and I'm here asking myself "what change have I brought to people around me so far?", "how many people have I brought closer to God by my lifestyle, my words and my thoughts?" It's not easy to be a Child of God, honestly..

Jesus, Mart and Joseph... Make our homes like unto thine

St Francisco... Pray for us

St Marco... Pray for us

Stella,it is "Our Lady told.." not "Our Lady asked..". Mother Mary wasn't asking them to say the rosary, she was telling them to.

Your welcome

That's great news. Block rosary those days. I remember carrying out center stand to congress every Saturday evening. And also leading the rosary with my sister. Wow! How time flies

I wonder why it took so long to make them saints. Am glad.i was moved to be a better catholic and to always pray for poor souls when I saw the movie and read the story. Oh what graces I have obtained praying the rosary. Indeed a Catholic's weapon is the holy rosary. St Jacinta and St Francisco pray for us.

I'm nostalgic now. See goose pimples for my body.
I miss my days in catholic church...I still attend catholic church but I'm tired. I feel like God's not hearing my prayers and I feel like He has abandoned me.

Even my friends who are non Catholics whenever they face really serious situations and it feels like prayer isn't working, I ask them to buy the simple prayer book and get a Rosary and pray it. I tell them they are not praying to Mary instead they are asking Mary to pray for them, they always come back with a testimony.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Catholics do not worship anyone but the creator. Angels,saints and our Blessed virgin mary are intercessors we constantly plead to pray for us.

@anonymous13:32. One of the messages of our Lady to the three little shepherd in Fatima is to pray, pray and always Pray.always Pray, say the rosary, do penance, say divine mercy prayers, fast, make sacrifices, God who is ever merciful and never known to fail will come to your aid. Mathew 28:20- I will be with you always to the end of age. GOD can't abadon you

God can't abandon you, no more than a mother could abandon her suckling child. Hold on to Him. Don't lose faith

So anon, what happened to having a deep and intimate relationship with God? By the way I was born catholic, so God wnt ans your prayers directly? What's the difference btw you and those saints? God can't speak to you? Following doctrine year after year? Same chapter, same day everyyear? Why do you need them to intercede? You spend more time praying to Mary than God. No one shall come to the father except tru me-Jesus. God the father, God the son, God the Holy Spirit.

Again, I laugh when Catholics go to reverend fathers for marriage counseling, what does a man who has never been married before know about marriage? Lol. I'm not against Catholics but I don't like it when I see them carrying statues up and down, that's idol worshipping, then again they don't study the Bible.

Anonymous said...

Show me where Christ told you to ask his mother to pray for you.

The Bible is clear, never use images in worship.

St.Francisco and St.Jancinta pray for us!

Anonymous said...

Now now now, ppl are already saying Francisco and jacinta should pray for them. Horrrr. Na wa o. So becos ur Pope had declared them saints, so u can now ask them to intercede for u. I can't understand how u ppl reason. You left what Jesus said but you are obeying ur Pope (nobody cometh unto the Father but through me saith Jesus) but u ppl are busy making saints up and down. Forgetting whom you serve. Be there adding more ppl to intercede for you, don't go and pray to Jesus to intercede for u inugo? Odiegwu. Only Jesus can intercede for u. Yea you wer probably born into the church but u are an adult now. Can't you read your Bible? Jeez! May God help all of us o.

@Anon 15:44 iji ya mehn with ur long Fatima style scarf.. Umu nne anyi di aso, umu Mary!!!!

You people be deceiving ur self, the bible says there is only one mediator between God and man and that is Jesus. Why do I AV to pray thru Mary. When I am joint-heir with Christ Jesus. And the bible Also says I shud come boldly to the throne of Grace and obtain mercy and find help in times of need. You don't need to pray thru any1 to God.

This day is for Saint Jacinta and Francisco. Because of your blindness and prejudices, you left the message of holiness and heroism by these children to attack the faith you know nothing about. Continue abusing and criticizing Catholics while they are doing the right and worshiping God not men as you have in protestant/Pentecostal churches. Catholic church is the church founded by Christ, given authority to teach the world and to bind and loose both on earth and in heaven. Your criticism has not been able to stop the work of God for 2,000 years... because the Gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. Many of you will be surprised that your pastors have been teaching to love and struggle for the things of this world without preparing for the realities of heaven. In heaven we shall with those who have gone ahead of us (the Saints) who have left us examples to imitate.
