It is Spring 2016. One hundred years ago during this season in Portugal (the children could never pinpoint the date) an angel visited three little shepherd children and urged them to pray. He taught them an act of reparation:
MY GOD, I believe, I adore, I trust, and I love Thee!
I ask pardon for for those who do not believe,
do not adore, do not trust and do not love Thee.
The angel, and later Our Blessed Mother, urged the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to pray the rosary every day.
