Our Lady of Fatima Soil Bracelet
Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three shepherd children at Fatima , Portugal on the 13th day of six consecutive months in 1917, starting on May 13, The three children were Lucia dos Santos and her cousins, siblings Francisco and Jacinta Marto. The title of Our Lady of the Rosary is also sometimes used in reference to the same apparition.
O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Queen of the most Holy Rosary, you were pleased to appear to the children of Fatima and reveal a glorious message. We implore you, inspire in our hearts a fervent love for the recitation of the Rosary. By meditating on the mysteries of the redemption that are recalled thereinmay we obtain the graces and virtues that we ask, through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer.
I created this bracelet in honor of Our Blessed Sweet Mother Our Lady of Fatima. I used a beautiful porcelain cameo of Our Lady of Fatima, a medal with soil encased on back of medal. Other Catholic medals include Miraculous Medal, St. Joseph, Our Lady of Guadalupe and others. I surrounded the medals with beautiful yellow polymer clay flowers as dedication to Our beautiful Lady.
