Blessed Virgin of Fatima, in the hills, you deigned to reveal to the three shepherd children that the treasures of grace can reach us when we pray the rosary. Help us to appreciate this holy prayer so that in meditating upon the mysteries of our redemption, we can receive the grace that we pursue fervently. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for our mothers!
