Today is a very special day for the people of Portugal and for all of us who hold a special devotion to Mary under the title of Our Lady of Fatima. Today marks the 100th anniversary of the appearance of Mary to the little Shepherd children of Fatima; Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco.

The optional readings for today’s memorial are taken from the common of the Blessed Virgin Mary and focus on the motherhood of Mary. I am pleased to share with you a video reflection from Redemptorist TV on this theme by Murray Chatlain, Archbishop of the Keewatin Le-Pas Archdiocese
