We call upon all those who wish to participate with us in joining together in prayer on the 13th day of each month, for the following intentions:
1) For individual requests as well as spiritual and material needs of each and every reader of CATHOLICITY.

2) To end the process of self-destruction in the Catholic Church.

3) To comply with the petition of Our Lady in Fatima: to ask that the Pope consecrates Russia to her Immaculate Heart (mentioning this nation explicitly in conjunction with the entire Episcopate of the world) and to pray for the conversion of the aforementioned country.

4) In reparation for our sins and for all the offenses Our Lord receives, especially for all the blasphemies uttered and sacrileges perpetrated.

5) For the conversion of sinners, particularly for those most in need of Divine mercy.

6) For increasing the number of priestly vocations and to ask that priests live a life of sanctity, reflecting the life of Christ.

7) For the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the implantation of the Social Reign of Our Lord Jesus Christ within our nations.

8) For achieving world peace, but not as the world gives it, but as Christ does. For the triumph of God in each country’s legislation, in particular to that of preserving all human life, including the unborn.

9) For the salvation of our souls, and the souls of relatives, friends and acquaintances.

10) For the needs of the Church.

The following prayers will suffice:

- An Act of Contrition:
  • “O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you, and I detest all my sins, because of Your just punishments, but most of all because they offend You, my God, who are all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin.”
- One Our Father
- Three Hail Marys, asking Our Lady to preserve us from mortal sin during temptations
- One Glory Be
- The prayer of Our Lady of Fatima:
  • “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins; save us from the fires of Hell; lead all souls into Heaven, especially those who are in most need of thy mercy.”
Conclude reciting the following prayer:
  • Lord, we ask You for the needs of the Church, for the consecration of Russia as requested in Fatima, for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Your most sweet Mother, for the implantation of Your Social Reign and Your peace in our nations, for the sanctity of the priests and for the increase of priestly vocations, as well as for the triumph of life and family in our countries’ legislation. We offer you our whole life in reparation for our own sins and for the offenses against your Most Sacred Name and for the grave sacrileges that are committed around the world. Lastly, we place in your hands, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, all the spiritual and material needs of both ourselves as well as those of our relatives, friends, acquaintances and our fellow readers and staff of CATHOLICITY.
  • - Immaculate Heart of Mary – Keep my family next to your heart.
  • - Immaculate Heart of Mary – Be the salvation of my soul.
  • - Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe – Save our country, preserve our faith and defend us from false shepherds.
  • - St. Michael the Archangel – Defend us against the devil’s schemes.
  • - Saint Pius V – Pray for us.

We make this appeal due to the suggestion of one of our readers. We selected the 13th of every month due to it being the date of the apparitions of Fatima. We conclude with an invocation to St. Pius V (a great holy Pontiff), since he is the patron saint of this blog: due to Providence, though unbeknownst to us, we started this blog (the original, Mexican version) on St Pius V Feast Day.

Every 13th of the month you will be given a reminder to say these prayers through our blog and by email, if subscribed. No doubt, God will bestow abundant graces upon all those who recite these prayers in association with our intentions. In addition, you will benefit from the common prayer of hundreds of people: in these 5 short minutes a month spent in prayer, we will succeed in uniting all readers, friends and staff of this Catholic blog in spirit. Of course, if there is anyone who wishes to pray for these intentions with greater frequency than once a month, they are welcome to. Reciting these prayers more often would be excellent, but it is completely optional.

God bless you.
