America Needs Fatima is a campaign to capture the heart and soul of America with the Message of Our Lady of Fatima. In 1917, Our Lady appeared at Fatima to three young seers with a message of warning and hope for humanity. If the world did not convert, the Blessed Mother said there would be much suffering, famines and wars. To avert such disasters, Our Lady asked for prayer, penance and other measures. She also promised that:
“Finally, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
Today, Our Lady’s message is timelier than ever in light of the many sins of men and the turning away from the Faith. The America Needs Fatima campaign is dedicated to bringing this urgent message into people’s homes and to the public square. This is done by the home visitation program, in which a statue of Our Lady visits thousands of private homes yearly. America Needs Fatima distributes millions of rosaries, devotional items and calendars. Other activities include Public Square Rosary Rallies, publications, e-mail campaigns and protests against blasphemies.

Since its foundation in 1973, America Needs Fatima has promoted a large amount of activities aimed at spreading Our Lady's Fatima message as well as promoting moral causes such as the fight for the unborn, traditional marriage, and protesting public blasphemy.
America Needs Fatima has definitely had a positive effect on my life. The Public Square Rosary Crusade, the various campaigns against blasphemy and the Saint Joseph Caravan for Traditional Marriage have inspired me to share, defend and love my Faith in a new way. On May 13, I will be making my Confirmation as an eighth grader in my parish. Could you please pray for me that I may become mature and courageous in my Christian Faith? Thank you again for your wonderful example.

I prayed the 9-day novena, and pinned the medal on my sister-in-law’s gown at her hospital bed.
Only Our Blessed Mother knows the merits she gave her. After her sixth week of suffering, she was taken into heaven on October 8, very, very peacefully. Her younger daughter was in a Denver hospital awaiting a liver transplant, which Our Lady provided right on her birthday, October 17.
We are all getting back to normal, fighting our battle, and climbing each step with the Rosary.

Your Crusade Magazine means a lot to us. The holy card of Our Lady of Fatima is indeed beautiful. I gave my card to a man who has severe congested heart problems. He has been away from the Church for many years and he has a soft spot for the Virgin Mary, so I figured the card would possibly help. Some of the people that I meet do not remember their prayers so the card is very helpful to them.

My husband was diagnosed last February with chronic myeloid leukemia, which was changing over to acute myeloid leukemia with blastemal cells, and the Philadelphia chromosome, which prolongs cellular division and is the last thing anybody with cancer should have. The doctors gave him a 10 percent chance of survival. He needed a bone marrow transplant and his sister was a perfect match. The day before he was diagnosed, I opened the Bible to pray for Keith and the message said for us to “endure what God has planned, for in the end there will be joy.”
I knew Keith was going to be cured, but I didn’t realize he would literally go through hell before it happened.
The bone marrow didn’t take and the cancer came back with a vengeance! It traveled through the cerebral spinal fluid to his brain and attacked the right optic nerve, causing blindness in that eye.
After infections, intensive chemotherapy and several near-death experiences, the doctor told me to prepare for the worst.
There was yet one last procedure that had about a 10 percent chance of success considering the type of leukemia he had. It was a T-cell infusion. His sister donated her white blood cells that were injected intravenously into Keith in the hope that the T cells would kill off the cancer cells and the Philadelphia chromosome as well.
This all happened right after Christmas, by which time you had sent me the Stories of Mary compact disc.
I was alone one day and decided to listen to it while I was painting. It inspired me to talk sincerely to the Blessed Mother. She seemed to tell me to say the Rosary and the novena to the Miraculous Medal.
Keith and I said the Rosary together over the phone while he was in the hospital waiting for his sister’s cells to regenerate.
On the ninth day, we said the Rosary together in the car on the way to his checkup. On that day, he took a blood test that would tell us the percentage of his cells to his sister’s cells, which happened on the final day of the novena. The results of that test came a day early. Keith received a phone call from his doctor. I heard him say, “I’m sitting down. OK . . . .” Then he put his hand to his mouth and yelled, “Are you kidding me?!” I thought, oh no, bad news.
I said to him, “What?” He looked at me with tears in his eyes and replied, “I’m 99 percent of my sister’s cells!” How we cried and hugged each other!
We thank the Blessed Mother so much and we thank Jesus for hearing her requests on Keith’s behalf!
Thank you so much for the Stories of Mary compact disc and for the novena to the Miraculous Medal! The hospital where Keith stayed heard about the miracle and the nurses are handing out the Miraculous Medals and praying the novena themselves!
Thank you for what you are doing. You may become weary from your work but your work is fruitful! I am so grateful for your fervor and for your love for the Lord and his Mother! You have brought us closer to our loving Lord and our Most Holy Mother.
God bless you a thousand times!
