So Many Souls Go to Hell Because No One Prays for Them
On that bright Sunday of August 19, 1917, Lucia, Francisco and his brother John, took their flock out to graze. On the way, Lucia felt something supernatural approach. Feeling that Our Lady was about to appear, John hurried away to get his sister Jacinta. Our Lady did appear, in a gleam of light, but she waited for little Jacinta before becoming visible above the oak tree.
She then said to them, “I want you to continue to come to Cova da Iria on the 13th day of the month, and to recite the rosary daily. The last month, I will do the miracle so everyone believes. If they hadn’t imprisoned you in town, the miracle would have been far more known. Saint Joseph will come with the Child Jesus to give peace to the world. Our Lord will come to bless the people. Then Our Lady of the Rosary and Our Lady of Sorrows will come as well.”
Lucia asked what should be done with all the money that people left at the foot of the green oak of Cova da Iria. “I want two procession floats to be made. You will carry one with Jacinta and two other little girls dressed in white, the other Francisco will carry the other with three boys like him, dressed in white albs. It will be for the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.”
“I would like to ask you to cure some sick people,” asked Lucia. “Yes, I will cure some this year.” Then, with a sad expression, Mary added, “Pray, pray very much, and make sacrifices for sinners, since so many souls go to hell because no one make sacrifices and prays for them.”
