St Jacinta Marto

Pulled a chair and I was raised the height of a mound
I knelt down and wished to know about You.

Lucia, tell me. How was it?

March 5, 1910 – March 5, 2021

 On this date, in which we celebrate the birth of Jacinta Marto, we are grateful for the great gift of her life and holiness. May the fidelity to her “yes” and the witness of her life surrendered to God, for Humanity, encourage us to embrace the Crucified Lord and offer to Him, with joy, the wholeness that life contains.
