Eastertide: Day 39
Today is a more serious day of Eastertide. It is the feast day known as Our Lady of Fatima. In 1917, Our Lady appeared in a series of apparitions to 3 young shepherd children in a rural part of Portugal, near the town of Fatima. What took place there in the final apparition was witnessed by more than 70,000 people, and reported in newspapers all over the world. You can listen to the Fatima story in the 30 minute radio production above, produced by my friends, the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement.
Pray for us, Our Lady of Fatima!
