[97] It is reported that during the fourth apparition of Our Lady of Fatima, at Valinhos, on August 19th, 1917, she exhorted the children in the following words: “Pray, pray very much, sacrifice yourselves for sinners. Remember that many souls are lost because there is nobody to pray and to make sacrifices for them.” Previously, on July 13th, she had told them: “Sacrifice yourselves for sinners. Say often, especially when you make sacrifices, ‘Oh, Jesus, it is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.’”

[98] Cf. Jn 15:1–5.

[99] In a book entitled Consummata, Fr. Raoul Plus, S.J., has given an account of the life of a young Frenchwoman, whose story will show what can be done in the lay state. It is not every one who has the same vocation, but most readers will find light and encouragement in her words.

[159] Ad diem ilium. Note: There is a difference between merit de condigno and merit de congruo. The former is based on justice and presupposes some equality between the work and the reward, or some promise by God; the second is rather a claim in equity, based on God’s goodness; there is no question of strict justice. A soldier merits his pay de condigno, but has a claim to a D.S.C. only de congruo.
