prayer for their canonization

Francisco Marto (11.6.1908 – 4.4.1919) and Jacinta Marto (11.3.1910 – 20.2.1920) were born in Aljustrel, a village in the parish of Fatima. In the company of their cousin Lucia, they saw an angel three times, and the Virgin Mary six times who urged them to pray and do penance for the remission of sins, and to obtain the conversion of sinners.
From then on they had only one aspiration: to pray and suffer according to the Angel and Our Lady’s requests.
In Fatima on 13th May 2000 Pope John Paul II inscribed their names among the Beatified.

PRAYER FOR THEIR CANONIZATION
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly and I thank You for the Apparitions of the Most Holy Virgin in Fatima.
By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary I implore You – if it should be for Your greater glory and the good of our souls – to glorify in the sight of Your Holy Church Blessed Francisco and Jacinta, granting us through their intercession the grace which we implore. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father.
Please send details of any favours received through the intercession of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta, to:
