Our Lady of Fatima
For six successive months in 1917, Mary appeared to three children in Fatima, Portugal, dressed in radiant white, as if “clothed with the sun” (Revelation 12:1)
She told them to pray a daily rosary, and taught them a prayer to add to each decade of the rosary: Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy”.
On her final appearance, she revealed herself as the Queen of the Rosary. The crowd of seventy thousand onlookers that day saw the sun whirl and dance, the “miracle” Mary had promised.
