The Lady of Fátima & the Miracle of the Sun

Fatima, Miracle of the Sun, The crowds at Fátima wait for a miracle on Oct. 13, 1917.

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.
