Mother’s Day & Our Lady of Fatima
May 13, 2018
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers! We also celebrate Mary, Mother to all!
Today is a special day in Fatima, Portugal:
On 13 May 1917, three shepherd children (Lúcia Santos and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto) reported seeing a woman “brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal goblet filled with the most sparkling water and pierced by the burning rays of the sun.” The woman wore a white mantle edged with gold and held a rosary in her hand. She asked them to devote themselves to the Holy Trinity and to pray “the Rosary every day, to bring peace to the world and an end to the war.” The children were at the Cova da Iria, in Fátima, Portugal.
