Today October 13, 2017 marks the 100 year anniversary of the “Miracle of the Sun ” at Fatima, Portugal. The miracle was witnessed by more than 70,000 spectators and observed up to 25 miles away by many people. Eyewitness described it as:
“The sun, at one moment surrounded with scarlet flame, at another aureoled in yellow and deep purple, seemed to be in an exceedingly swift and whirling movement, at times appearing to be loosened from the sky and to be approaching the earth, strongly radiating heat.”
Dr. Domingos Pinto Coelho, writing for the Catholic newspaper Ordem.
“Looking at the sun, I noticed that everything was becoming darkened. I looked first at the nearest objects and then extended my glance further afield as far as the horizon. I saw everything had assumed an amethyst color. Objects around me, the sky and the atmosphere, were of the same color. Everything both near and far had changed, taking on the color of old yellow damask,”
José Maria de Almeida Garrett
Science professor from Coimbra, Portugal.
The miracle was a sign for nonbelievers and a call for conversion towards Jesus Christ. As a result many miracles and conversions were reported.
This is precisely what our Blessed Mother Mary and the saints always do: they always points towards Jesus!
Our Lady of Fatima Pray for Us!
