Exactly 101 Years Ago at Fatima 70,000 People Saw One of the Greatest Miracles in History

Taken from:- h/t "206 Tours from Facebook" :-

Exactly 101 years ago, on Oct 13th, 1917, 70,000 people flocked to Fatima, many were unbelievers came hoping to see the Church humiliated. They all witnessed The Miracle of the Sun at Fatima. It was one of the most extraordinary and breathtaking event of the 20th century, yet, until now, it is hardly known outside the Church. People came and endured terrible rainstorm. At noon, Our Lady appeared to the children, and after repeating her requests for the daily rosary, and promising that World War I would soon end. Then, while the three seers saw visions of the Holy Family, the crowd of at least 70,000 people were mesmerised as the Miracle of the Sun unfolded. Even non-believers couldn’t deny it, as this report, which appeared in the secular Lisbon paper O Dia, indicates: “The silver sun … was seen to whirl and turn in the circle of broken clouds. A cry went up from every mouth and the people fell on their knees on the muddy ground. … The light turned a beautiful blue as if it had come through the stained-glass windows of a cathedral and spread itself over the people who knelt with outstretched hands. The blue faded slowly and then the light seemed to pass through yellow glass. … People wept and prayed with uncovered heads in the presence of the miracle they had awaited. The seconds seemed like hours, so vivid were they.” Our Lady of Fatima pray for us
