Advent with Our Lady of Fatima
Publisher: Sophia Institute Press
Publication Date: October 18, 2018
Spend this Advent with Our Lady of Fatima
and with six saintly souls who were particularly devoted to her:
St. Teresa of Calcutta, St. John Paul II, Fr. Andrew Apostoli, and the Three Shepherd Children to whom Mary appeared in 1917!
In these spiritually-rich pages, award-winning Catholic author Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle brings you powerful prayers and readings guaranteed to shield you from the annual holiday sales frenzy that, during the holy season of Advent, distracts even sincere believers from preparation for the coming of the Christ Child.
These wise pages are sure to draw you closer to Our Lady of Fatima and her gracious messages of peace and hope. For these Advent prayers and readings are all rooted in Mary's 1917 messages to Jacinta, Francisco, and Lucia (the three young Fatima visionaries); and in the personal Fatima devotions of three of our holy contemporaries, St. Teresa of Calcutta, St. John Paul II, and the late Fr. Andrew Apostoli.
Reflecting on Advent through their lives and words, you will also learn:
- The prayers of adoration the Angel taught Jacinta, Francisco, and Lucia
- What Fr. Andrew considered the most important of Our LadyFatima requests
- How St. John Paul II fulfilled the Third Secret of Fatima -- and why he credits Our Lady with saving his life!
- How, in his final months, Fr. Andrew radically fulfilled Our Lady's Fatima requests
- The role Mother Teresa secretly played in the consecration of Russia
- Why, particularly in Advent, you must pray for Our Lady's Immaculate Heart to triumph
- And much more to help you grow closer to Our Lady and keep your Advent frenzy-free.
As someone who has written books about Our Lady of Fatima before, Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle brings a unique richness to Advent with Through Advent with Our Lady of Fatima. She blends the wisdom of Fr. Andrew Apostoli, the Three Shepherd Children, Saint Teresa of Calcutta, and Saint John Paul II with her own into a fantastic formula of meditation, prayer and action that will make this your holiest, most blessed Advent ever!

This is an Advent journey like no other, revealing spiritual gifts from the God who comes, and reflected in the lives of some of his greatest disciples, many of whom I too was privileged to know personally. This journey leads us to learn, reflect, pray and act. Don t miss it!

Donna Marie has captured the spirituality of the message of Fatima. This compilation of reflections and prayers of Mother Teresa, St John Paul II, the shepherd children, and Fr. Andrew Apostoli is a great guide to hope, peace, joy and love as seen through the eyes of these holy people. A great spiritual guide for Advent.
