Pope Benedict XVI at Fatima
I wish I'd found this picture in time to include it in my previous post!
You can almost hear the plea of the Holy Father as he prays to Our Lady before one of her most well known images, that of the 'beautiful lady' who appeared to three young children in Fatima, in 1917.
Essentially, Our Lady's message, given at Fatima, was a call to prayer, penance and sacrifice in reparation for our sins which so greatly offend God. The need to pray, do penance and make sacrifices has been recently echoed by the Holy Father.
