"My meetings with Sister Lucia greatly reinforced my conviction that it's the simple people who are closest to the heart of God. They're the ones who intercede with God to make the world a better place. If men act humanely...it's thanks to the prayers of the simple."
- Cardinal Bertone on meeting Sr. Lucia of the Fatima apparition
"Taking advantage of the intimacy to which the Lord was admitting me, I interceded before Him for the whole world. At such moments I have the feeling that the whole world is depending on me."
- Saint Faustina, diary paragraph #870
