Day 2 - What Do You Seek?
Light a candle as you begin, as a sign that in your home lives a pilgrim of Fatima by the heart. Our Lady watches over your way.
Prayer of the Angel of Peace: My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You. I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You.
- What do you seek? What are our intentions, our dreams and ideals; it is our yearnings, wishes and inner quests; our expectations on the future, our radical need to growing to be truly what we are, to overcome ourselves, go beyond our shadows, fears and mediocrities, fulfilling what we are made for and being recognized for what we will be. Indeed, we seek for an experience of communion which leads to fully accomplish our deepest truth.
My God, You inhabit the innermost of my heart and You call me to become a pilgrim by the heart and to meet You there. I listen to the Mother of Your Son asking me to become Her relative to live as a pilgrim by the heart taking a chance of familiarity with Her which will make me ready for Your Son and will introduce me to Him. Listen to my voice and grant me the faithful constancy to the encounter with Her to mature my poor humanity discover and purify my inner quests until I live and remain in the intimacy of Jesus and follow Him in the fulfilment of His saving mission. I am a pilgrim by the heart, I seek you to live with you in commitment. I want to go on a pilgrimage by the heart into Your mother’s heart, mother of mine, Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima. In Her heart, You will be waiting for my heart and away from the Little Chapel in Fatima, I make myself a pilgrim by the heart: I shall follow my heart and in Mother’s immaculate heart I shall listen to the merciful beating of Your heart. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Mother of Heaven, be attentive to the supplications of a world facing tribulation. Answer the cry of the poor and the sick, give comfort and hope to all those who suffer, give strength and compassion to all those who work and care for those who are suffering. Bring peace to the world. In your immaculate heart, be for all your children a refuge and a way to God. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. Saints Francisco and Jacinta Marto, pray for us.
