On 13 May 2017, on the occasion of the commemoration of the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima 100 years ago, the Congregation worldwide renewed her consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
On the occasion of the meeting of the provincial and regional superiors, this consecration was already made in Rome on 25 April at the General House of the Brothers of Charity by the attending superiors, asking this consecration to be made globally on 13 May, in great solidarity with the world Church and especially with the Holy Father who also consecrated the world to Mary in Fatima.
The previous consecration dates back to 1943 when the Congregation was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary during the war years at the invitation of the then Pope Pius XII. In the present, with its many difficulties, both in the Congregation and in the world, the leaders of the Congregation found it meaningful to renew this consecration throughout the Congregation.
We would like to offer you the prayer that was issued on this occasion.
