Feast of Our Lady of Fatima

On arriving at the Cova da Iria, near the holm oak, moved by some interior impulse, I asked the people to shut their umbrellas. We began to say the Rosary and shortly after we saw the reflection of the light and after that Our Lady on the holm oak.

What do you want from me?

I want to tell you to have a chapel built here in my honour. I am the Queen of the Holy Rosary. Continue praying the Rosary daily. The war is coming to an end and the soldiers will come back to their homes soon.

I had many things to ask you, to cure sick people, to convert sinners etc.

I will cure or convert some of them. Others I will not. They must repent and beg pardon for their sins. Do not offend God any more. You have offended Him so much.

... The miracle of the sun, promised in July, occurred as a proof of the truth of the apparitions in Fatima. The rain stops and the sun revolves three times round itself, sending in all directions luminous rays of different colours, yellow, lilac, orange and red. At a certain moment it seemed to be detached from the sky and to fall on the crowd. After ten minutes of this wonderful sight, the sun returned to its normal state...

After Our Lady had disappeared in the immense distance of the sky, we saw at the side of the sun St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady dressed in white with a blue mantle. It seemed that St. Joseph and the Child Jesus were blessing the world with gestures of their hands in the form of a cross.
