During World War I, in the midst of a world that seemed abandoned by God and consumed by evil, Jesus’s mother came to remind the world of God’s love, of the serious nature of sin, of the need for prayer—and a warning against the evils of Communism. Today is the feast of Our Lady of Fatima.
In a world torn apart by a long savage war that impacted millions, the Blessed Mother appeared in Fatima, Portugal on May 13, 1917 at the Cova da Iria near the village of Aljustrel, to three shepherd children – Lucia de Jesus dos Santos, age 10, Francisco Marto, 9, and Jacinta Marto, 7.
Our Lady of Fatima told the children, “I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart…If people attend to My requests, Russia will be converted and the world will have peace.” Sadly, the consecration of Russia has never been performed by the popes as Our Lady desired, and we see now how the errors of Communism have taken over the world. Our Lady said if men didn’t stop sinning, the world would be punished “by means of war, hunger and persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father.” And so it has happened.
Our Lady performed a miracle too. The sun trembled, made sudden incredible movements outside all cosmic laws – the sun ‘danced’ according to the typical expression of the people.
