The day before, while praying the rosary along with the pilgrims gathered in Fatima, I had the inspiration to invite her, along with Sr. M. Jacinta who also celebrated her feastday on May 13 to join me to pray together. It worked out that 2:00pm would be the best time. We had EWTN on mute but still visible. As we were starting the rosary, Pope Francis exposed the Blessed Sacrament. As we were praying the 5th Joyful Mystery, our Holy Father walked over to the section where all of the sick and infirm were seated and blessed each section with the Eucharist. What a true blessing! It was so wonderful to be a part of this Fatima Celebration in the Heart of the Church, my Mother.
