About Our Lady of Fatima 

Our Lady of Fátima is the title given to the Virgin Mary as she appeared before three shepherd children near the village of Fátima, Portugal, in 1917. She identified herself to them as the Lady of the Rosary. From May through October 1917, the Lady appeared and spoke to the children on the 13th day of each month. News of these apparitions began to spread throughout the region. The children recounted that the Virgin told them that God had sent her with a message for every man, woman, and child living in the century.  She promised that God would grant peace to the entire world if Her requests for prayer, reparation and consecration were heard and obeyed. The Roman Catholic Church officially recognized the Fátima events as worthy of belief in 1930.
