As members of the Lay Fraternities of St. Dominic, we are called to bear witness to the truth of Christ’s message of salvation in the world.


Fatima Prayer for Peace

Credit: Arizona Rosary Society

O God, all-holy Father, who gave us Your peace through Jesus and through Him You wish to lead us to Your Heart – in this place where the Virgin  Mary invites us to pray for peace in the world and where the Angel of Peace exhorts us to adore God alone, grant us, we pray, that peace may reign among all peoples; that the leaders of the nations find ways towards justice, that we may all reach the peace of heart and that, through the intercession of the Queen of Peace, we may become builders of a more fraternal world.

Through Christ, our Lord.  Amen.


The International Promoter of the Laity, Fr. Rui Carlos Antunes e Almeida Lopes, O.P. has asked all lay Dominicans to pray this prayer daily during the jubilee of the centenary of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima.   1917-2017
