Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, Wednesday 13th May  The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, appeared six times to three shepherd children; Lucia dos Santos and her cousins, Francisco, and Jacinta Marto; between May 13th and October 13th 1917. She came to the little village of Fatima which had remained faithful to the Catholic Church during the recent persecutions by the government. Our Lady came with a message from God to every man woman, and child. 
Our Lady of Fatima promised that the whole world would be in peace, and that many souls would go to Heaven if her requests were listened to and obeyed. 
At Fatima, Pope John Paul II said; "The message of Fatima is more relevant and more urgent than when Our Lady first appeared." Our Lady of Fatima continues to work miracles today through the message of Fatima and the prayers of countless pilgrims who have travelled here in the last hundred years.
