Because the need for reparation is central to our salvation; and  Because the Fatima message is prophetic. Our Lady at Fatima could, by the will of God, foresee our time and the need for greater reparation that would arise from a world that has forsaken Him. Surely, the Lord revealed to the Virgin that, if her message was not heeded by enough people, the violation of God’s law would escalate on a massive scale in society and even within the Church, the “smoke of Satan” invading its very sanctuary.
Today, we can start offering our day, doing our daily duty, and praying our Rosary. We can do small sacrifices praying as Our Lady asked: “Jesus, it is for love of Thee, the conversion of sinners, and in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” As the Angel told us in 1916: “The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplication.” We can learn the Angel’s prayer of reparation cited above and pray it often. We can learn the message of Fatima and tell others. There is much we can do. These need not be great, heroic actions. We can do the little things well, as did St. Therese of Lisieux.
We need to adopt a sacrificial spirit---a generosity in doing something for the love of God. Giving up a small pleasure. Drinking one’s coffee without sugar occasionally, controlling vain curiosity, practicing custody of the eyes. Skipping dessert. Getting up to do the dishes instead of delay. Doing a small favor to please a spouse, parent, or coworker. Getting in the habit of mentally praying every time something disagreeable or uncomfortable happens: “Jesus, it is for the love of Thee, the conversion of sinners and in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
