O My Jesus: The Meaning of the Fatima Prayer
The so-called “Fatima prayer," O my Jesus, surely ranks among the Church's most popular prayers. In the space of just twenty-nine words, it broaches some of the great themes of Christianity: sin, forgiveness, mercy, heaven, hell. The author offers here reflections on this prayer, resulting in a work of popular theology and spiritual writing.
