This book connects the third secret of Fatima with the request for the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, helping the reader understand the great call of Fatima and their personal role in bringing about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
Building upon the Catholic understanding of Mary and the development of devotion to her, Larry Maginot draws on insights provided by St. Maximilian Kolbe and the visions of Fatima to show how God’s promise to renew the world will be through Mary’s Immaculate Heart.
From Sister Lucia’s last vision at Tuy, Spain and St. Faustina’s image of Divine Mercy, Maginot explores the timeline from Christ’s Crucifixion to His post-Resurrection appearances to the apostles, when graces and mercy were sacramentally unleashed upon mankind. From there, he examines the third secret of Fatima, showing the way to Calvary that the Church must follow to attain the triumph of the Cross, which is co-extensive with the triumph of the Immaculate Heart. Each person who takes up the Cross of Jesus is called to follow this path with Mary, embracing her fiat—let it be done unto me according to Thy word.
“The author grants to us a careful look at the meaning of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima and invites us to consider anew our response to the Church’s cherished, longstanding devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” ~ Monsignor Charles M. Mangan, Office of the Marian Apostolate, Diocese of Sioux Falls
