A Great Sign From Heaven

The Marian apparitions at Fatima have not merely been approved by the Church: due to their prophetic nature, they have been given a place of prominence over all other apparitions. What did Our Lady really say? Why does Fatima continue to have such great importance for the Church and the world? Begin a journey that will help you understand Our Lady’s messages and let them transform the way you live out your faith.

What is the True Story of Our Lady of Fatima?

The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children in 1917 in Fatima, Portugal, on the 13th day of the month from May to October. The final apparition on October 13th concluded with the spectacular “Miracle of the Sun” and was witnessed by over 70,000 people. Although many Catholics have heard of Our Lady of Fatima, most do not know the incredible story in its entirety or its crucial importance in world history, the life of the Church, and our own eternal salvation.

Why This Apparition Matters To You

Over a century after the apparitions, Our Lady’s appearance at Fatima remains a event of the greatest importance in the life of the Church. Pope Francis, who dedicated his pontificate to Our Lady of Fatima, honored the centenary with a historic visit to the site of the Marian apparitions on May 13th, 2017. You can immerse yourself in the history and meaning of Fatima from your own home by participating in this 30-day series, which will present and explain the apparitions and show you how they apply to you and your family today.

We believe it is important for everyone to know the Fatima story, what it means, and how it has dramatically unfolded in history since the original event. In the words of Pope Benedict XVI: “We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete.” As you read, listen, and pray through this series, our goal is for you to practice your Catholic faith in a way that will be transformative for your whole life.

I really liked this series and learned so much ? it was very well done! Thank you for providing this great resource!
I was already praying the rosary daily but now have a much deeper feeling and purpose to continue with that practice. I also go to first Saturday mass but again have a much deeper appreciation of the significance of that practice and it?s importance for the world.

I absolutely loved it. I have such a new insight. My father had a dear devotion to the Blessed Mother and he passed away last fall. It coincided with my now having an empty nest and I begin to pray the rosary every day as well as the Divine Mercy chapter just as he did. I am so thankful that now I am in the habit and will continue to do so. This series was so well done. I will continue to spread the word. I would love to have a written copy, a book I guess, to be able to return to to.
