Our Lady of Fatima
In 1917, The Virgin Mary appeared to three young children in the village of Fatima, Portugal. They described Her as: “a Lady all in white, more brilliant than the sun… indescribably beautiful.” She continued to appear to them on the 13th day of every month from May through October. She came with the promise that God would grant peace to the entire world if Her requests for prayer, reparation, and consecration were met; and so the children went as her messengers to the village. Some believed, others scoffed. However, on the day of her last visit, nearly 70,000 people, both believers and ridiculers alike, gathered and witnessed the Miracle of the Sun! The clouds parted and people watched in awe and terror as the sun danced around the sky before returning to its place in the sky. When the Miracle had ended and the fear subsided, people cheered and celebrated, for they were truly a witness to Mary's miraculous wonders!
