The World Apostolate of Fatima – Our Lady’s Blue Army – is a Public International Association of the Faithful under The Pontifical Council for the Laity. It was established as such to speak officially to the world on behalf of Holy Mother Church about the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, Portugal in 1917 to three little shepherd children; the message from heaven she delivered to the world during those apparitions; and the profound miracle, known as the “Miracle of the Sun,” which was performed at the last apparition on October 13, 1917, in order to verify that she was indeed who she claimed to be and that her message to the world was authentic. Contained in Our Blessed Mother’s Fatima Message are the keys to bringing about the conversion of sinners which is necessary to save souls from hell and bring peace to the world.
The apostolate’s mission is to help people learn, live and spread the authentic Message of Our Lady of Fatima in communion with the Church and in concert with the New Evangelization. Reparation for sin, the cultivation of virtuous living and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary are the core of Our Lady’s message. These are contained in and supported by what have come to be known as Our Lady’s Fatima Requests. It is toward the teaching of these requests and the assisting of people in living them that the apostolate’s mission is directed.
