Apparition of 13 October 1917, Miracle of the Sun

Ninetieth Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun in Fatima

Here is a description from Lucia's memoirs:
After our Lady had disappeared into the immense distance of the firmament, we beheld St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady robed in white with a blue mantle, beside the sun. St. Joseph and the Child Jesus seemed to bless the world, for they traced the Sign of the Cross with their hands. When, a little later, this apparition disappeared, I saw Our Lord and Our lady; it seemed to me to that it was Our Lady of Sorrows (Dolors). Our Lord appeared to bless the world in the same manner as St. Joseph had done. This apparition also vanished, and I saw Our Lady once more, this time resembling Our Lady of Carmel. [Only Lucia would see the later, presaging her entrance into Carmel some years later.]

Please offer a rosary today for the conversion of sinners, for the poor souls in purgatory and for the offenses committed against Our Blessed Mother.

My God, I believe, I adore, I trust and I love Thee.
I beg pardon for those who do not believe,
do not adore, do not trust Thee, and do not love Thee. Amen.
