On May 13, 1917, Our Lady first appeared to the shepherd children Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta in Fatima. She appeared to them again on June 13, July 13, August 19, September 13 and October 13. During the course of her apparitions, she delivered some important messages to the children to announce to the world.

In all the apparitions, Our Lady told them to "pray the Rosary every day". She also told them to "pray, pray very much and make sacrifices for sinners, for many souls go to hell, because there are none to sacrifice themselves and to pray for them."

She warned: "Do not offend the Lord our God anymore, because He is already so much offended."

She told them to continue to pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world and the end of the First World War — which had been raging since 1914 and ended in November 1918 — because only she can bring peace. She assured them that "in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph."

The highlights of the message of Fatima include the following:

1. Amendment of Life: "I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins. They must not continue to offend Our Lord, who is already too much offended."

2. Five Warnings: "If my requests are not granted, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions against the Church. Many good people will be martyred; there will come another great war (Second World War), and various nations will be destroyed."

3. War: "Wars are a punishment for the sins of mankind."
