Who would have thought that the Blessed Mother would choose to come to Fatima, that remote farming village on a rocky slope in Portugal?
No one was more surprised that Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco, the little shepherds to whom she appeared in 1917. That she should entrust the children with messages for the world was beyond their imagination.
In this twenty-seventh volume of the acclaimed Vision Books series for youth, readers will be enthralled by the story of the village and its people, of the scornful neighbours and the puzzled parents. Above all, it is the warmly human story of the three little ones who insisted that Our Lady had indeed come to Fatima. One of the great spiritual movements of our time grew out of the faith of these children.
The Fatima story is one of momentous events in a war-ridden world, of the serious warnings and predictions of the heavenly Queen. At the same time, it is the joyous story of a loving Mother's visits to her delighted children - and perhaps this, after all, is the real wonder of Fatima.
