Our Lady of Akita, Japan: Prayer, Penance and Courageous Sacrifices Needed

"Many men in this world afflict the Lord. I desire souls to console Him to soften the anger of the Heavenly Father. I wish, with my Son, for souls who will repair by their suffering and their poverty for the sinners and ingrates."
~ Our Lady of Akita to Sr. Agnes ~

The angel told Sr. Agnes after Communion:
"Many men in this world afflict the Lord. Our Lady awaits souls to console Him. Remain in poverty. Sanctify yourself and pray in reparation for the ingratitudes and the outrages of so many men. The Rosary is your weapon. Say it with care and more often for the intention of the Pope, of bishops and priests. You must not forget these words (of Mary). The Blessed Virgin prays continually for the conversion of the greatest possible number and weeps, hoping to lead to Jesus and to the Father souls offered to Them by Her intercession. For this intention, and to overcome exterior obstacles, achieve interior unity, form a single heart. Let believers lead a life more worthy of believers! Pray with a new heart. Attach great importance to this day for the glory of God and His Holy Mother. With courage spread this devotion among the greatest number. Inform your superior and him who directs you of what I have told you."


O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell.
Lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those in most need of Thy mercy.

~ Fatima prayer to be said after each decade of the Rosary,
taught to Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta by Our Lady of Fatima
and taught to Sr. Agnes by her guardian angel ~
