Catholics all over the world believe that the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three children: Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta in 1917, at the height of WWI, near the town of Fatima in Portugal. The Lady appeared six times, revealing three secrets and concluding the last visit with the miracle of the sun. Now people of many faiths and persuasions are gaining interest in the Fatima secrets revealed to the children one hundred years ago.
Francisco and Jacinta died as children. Pope Francis canonized them as children saints in 2017. Lucia lived on as a Discalced Carmelite nun, writing her memoirs of the Marian event.> Add a comment >
