Our Lady of Fatima: Speaking of Our Lady's appearances at Fatima (where She identified Herself as "the Lady of the Rosary"), Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité has written that "if She willed to appear at the Cova da Iria holding (the Rosary) in Her hand ... it was to show us that it is the surest means, because it is the easiest and the humblest, of winning Her Heart and obtaining Her graces."
The Miracle of the Sun is a miraculous event witnessed by as many as 100,000 people on 13 October 1917 in the Cova da Iria fields near Fátima, Portugal. Those in attendance had assembled to observe what the Portuguese secular newspapers had been ridiculing for months as the absurd claim of three shepherd children that a miracle was going to occur at high-noon in the Cova da Iria on 13 October 1917.
The 3 visionary children of Fatima: The Three Secrets of Fátima consist of a series of Apocalyptic visions and prophecies given by an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary to three young Portuguese shepherds, Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto, starting on 13 May 1917. The three children were visited by a Marian apparition six times between May and October 1917. The apparition is now popularly known as Our Lady of Fátima.
