Fatima 100 (October)

This is the last of the apparitions of Our lady to Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia. Over the evening of 12 October it rained throughout the night and on the morning of the 13th the skies were overcast. Once again there were crowds of people at the Cova. When they first arrived the Lady appeared and Lucia asked “What do you want of me?” The Lady responded that she wanted a chapel built here and continue to pray the Rosary everyday. She also revealed that she is The Lady of the Rosary. As the Lady of the Rosary rose toward the east she turned the palms of her hands toward the dark sky. and the sun busted through the clouds and is seen to be a soft spinning disk of silver. This is where we have two different apparitions as the spectators saw the miracle of the sun while the children saw as Lucia recalls St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady robed in white with a blue mantle, beside the sun.  Joseph and the Child traced the Sign of the Cross with their hands. After this disappeared Our Lord and Our lady it seemed that it was Our Lady of Sorrows. Our Lord appeared to bless the world in the same manner as St. Joseph had done. This apparition also vanished, and Lucia herself saw Our Lady once more, this time resembling Our Lady of Carmel (foreshadowing her vocation). As for the Miracle of the Sun the reports of what happened vary between the different observers some say that the Sun danced others say that their previously wet clothes along with the wet muddy ground became completely dry. People could look up at the sun without burning their eyes, the sun was yellow, blue, orange.  Scientist say it was the atmospheric optical phenomenon known as a sundog.

If you have a chance pull out a Rosary and pray it. This is the repeated message of Our Lady pray the Rosary and too many of us can’t even take the time to pray it.
