Our Lady of Fatima 2010

Today in our Liturgical Year, 2010, we have both the Ascension and the Feast of Our lady of Fatima.
As we plan to celebrate both we will concentrte on our Ascension plans and celebrate our Lady's Feast tomorrow.

We will however start the Novena to the Holy Spirit today:

The Novena in honor of the Holy Spirit is the original novena, of which all other novenas are only imitations. Our Lord Himself instituted this novena when, on the day of His ascension, He sent His Apostles back to Jerusalem to pray for nine days that they might be ready on the tenth day, which was Pentecost, to receive the Holy Spirit. ~ Catholic Culture

Plans for This Feast (tomorrow):
Today the 13th May is the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, venerating the the anniversary of the first apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary to three shepherd children - Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco at Fatima, Portugal in 1917.
"The message of Fatima includes a call to conversion of heart, repentance from sin and a dedication to the Blessed Virgin Mary, especially through praying the Rosary."

Catholic Culture has a some pages specifically set up for Our Lady of Fatima.
Also these pages on today the 13th as well. has some wonderful information to read and do. More information here
