  1. Hi I found this too.
    “And with that we are back to Fatima, Portugal where Our Lady, when asked her name, said: “I am the Lady of the Rosary.” At Fatima, Our Lady taught us to pray the Rosary every day. Heaven presented its peace plan at Fatima ” from this link

    So St Lucia asked the mother of God Her name and She answered.

  2. Hi This is from your own blog
    “when She revealed Herself to Juan Diego, She named Herself as “The Mother of The True God”.

    so you are admitting that the name of God the Mother is “the Mother of the True God”. And so at Fatima we got another name “the Lady of the Rosary”. So when we say the ave prayer we should say Ave “insert name” so Ave “the Mother of the True God The Lady of the Rosary”. Thanks for letting me post. Mr Nobody blocked me.
