On October 13, 1917, a miracle happened. The sun danced! Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three shepherd children for the last time. To prove that she really was from Heaven, she promised the children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta that she would make a miracle. She asked the children on previous occassions to pray the rosary in reparation for the sins of others and to pray for peace.
On this particular day, when Lucia asked the beautiful Lady who she was and what she wanted, she answered, "I am the Lady of the Rosary, and I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins. People must not continue to offend the Lord, Who is already so deeply offended. They must say the rosary." As a family, we are celebrating this day with our favourite book on Fatima, our favourite video and some colouring pages from Our Blessed Mother Coloring Book.
