Fatima. Heart. Immaculate Heart of Mary
The document was written by nun Lucia at the request of Fr. Jose Aparicio da Silva, (Fr. Jose Aparicio da Silva, S.J.), who was her confessor in Tui. In response to this demand, Lucia asked me to write the memoir in the third person.
What had been confided, regarding this, in 1917 is the following: she asked for them to be taken to Haven.

The Most Holy Virgin, putting a hand on her shoulder, showed her, at the same time, a Heart ringed round with thorns, that she held in her other hand. At the same time, the Child said: “Have pity on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother, that is covered with thorns, which ungrateful men at every moment stick in It, without there being anyone to make an act of reparation to take them out.”

Let you, at least, strive to console Me, and tell all those who during five months, on the first Saturday, go to confession, receive Holy Communion, say a Rosary, and keep Me company for fifteen minutes, meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, for the intention of making reparation to Me, I promise to assist them at the hour of death, with all the graces necessary for the salvation of their souls.”
