October is traditionally celebrated as the month of the Holy Rosary, so it is fitting that this October 13 we will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the last apparition of Our Lady of Fatima.

Upon my bed by night I sought him whom my soul loves; I sought him, but found him not; I called him, but he gave no answer. … Continue reading
