To accept all difficulties that
we encounter in our daily lives
The brief but very powerful
be recited along the day in every occasion when we face a
my Jesus, I offer this
the conversion of sinners,
in reparation for the sins committed against the
Immaculate Heart of Mary
A Pearl of Divine Wisdom
As part of the communications associated with Our Lady of the Rosary of
Fatima, the faithful were informed not to seek additional
mortification to offer to God, but to offer/accept any and all
difficulties that we encounter in our daily lives for:
of Jesus, in reparation for the offenses committed against the
Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.
Why was this simple instruction which may appear as "just another
exercise of piety", as many would say, important enough for the Mother
of God to personally deliver it to mankind?
God did not want that mankind's ever increasing suffering be wasted
since, if properly offered, it would become an auto corrective
mechanism for mankind's ills.
How Does It Work?
1. If the suffering is needed by God for the redemption of our brothers
and sisters, He will give us the strength to endure it as we, though
His Grace, help the disoriented Elect find their way to Heaven.
2. If the suffering is just out of the meanness of satan, he will soon
stop the harassment. He is not about to contribute to the redemption of
mankind as his victim turns the suffering into an act of Love for God
sends the heaviest crosses to those He calls His own,
the bitterest drops of the chalice are reserved for His friends alone.
the blood red drops are precious, and the crosses are all gain,
Joy is bought with Sacrifice, and the price of love is Pain.
Note 1 added on August 8th, 2021:
(a) You can make the offering at the
beginning of the day, at the middle of the day and at the end of your
day [in this way: "O my Jesus, I
offer my efforts,
difficulties and suffering in this day for Love of Thee, for the
conversion of sinners and in reparation for the sins/offenses committed
against the Immaculate Heart of Mary."]. You have no idea what
God can achieve with your offering. Knowing that your heart is in the
right place and that you are sincere, He will use every drop of
suffering that you may be enduring in marvelous ways.
(b) We have often said that we should
offer prayers, fasting and reasonable sacrifices without getting into the
sado-masochistic techniques of self flagellation, cilice and similar
sado-masochistic techniques. [Instead, ...] to offer/accept any and all
difficulties that we encounter in our daily lives for: Love of Jesus, in reparation for the
offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the
conversion of poor sinners.
Note 2 added on August 8th, 2021:
This is the account of one of our close collaborators whose testimony
we fully endorse:
Very occasionally, since my
adolescence, I had a recurring dream, very
brief but very disturbing, almost terrifying, consisting of a mixture
of noises and threatening shadows, sometimes even with voices, and all
wrapped in a sensation as if an electric shock was being released in my
head, while I was aware that I was still in bed. It was much later when
I identified this dream as demonic
attacks. I wasn't too scared, because I knew that God was protecting me
and that, whatever those shadows/demons were, couldn't touch me, but it
still a very upsetting and unpleasant experience.
On one occasion, in the middle of that dream, I made a distress call to
my guardian angel to stop the attack, but it did not stop. Next, I made
the same request to St. Michael the Archangel, but the attack did not
cease either. Then I remembered the Fatima prayer, which I was already
learning to apply on a daily basis, and I recited it with my heart on
I offer You the annoyance that this attack is causing me for the love
of Jesus, for the conversion of sinners and for the reparation of sins
committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The attack
This confirmed in my soul the knowledge that satan cannot bear to have
his attacks turned into an act of glorification of God directed at
Jesus and Mary. Since then, I have an even greater confidence that this
Fatima prayer has immense
power and great value for Heaven.
Now, I even offer to God daily: all the sorrows and negative
consequences upon me (*)
that are a result of my mistakes, sins and
omissions, present, past and
future. This is an effective spiritual
curb the influence of the devil, who will be less interested in
me to commit mistakes and sins.
(*) I cannot offer the
suffering that I cause to others, because I do not suffer it myself,
but I can offer the sorrow that causes/will cause me to have harmed
