Direct Quotations from Theotokos.org website: The Apparitions at Fatima
13 June 1917
About fifty people turned up at the Cova da Iria on June 13, as the three children assembled near the holmoak tree where the Lady had appeared. The children then saw a flash of light followed immediately by the apparition of Mary, as she spoke to Lucia: “I want you to come on the 13th of next month, to pray the Rosary every day, and to learn to read. Later, I will tell you what I want.”
Lucia asked Mary to take them to heaven and was reassured in this way: “I will take Jacinta and Francisco shortly; but you will stay here for some time to come. Jesus wants to use you to make Me known and loved. He wishes to establish the devotion to My Immaculate Heart throughout the world. I promise salvation to whoever embraces it; these souls will be dear to God, like flowers put by Me to adorn his throne.” This last sentence is found in a letter written in 1927 by Sr. Lucia to her confessor.
Lucia was sad at the first part of this reply, saying: “Am I to stay here alone?” Mary replied: “No, my daughter. Are you suffering a great deal? Don’t lose heart. I will never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.”
One of the witnesses to this apparition, Maria Carreira, described how Lucia then cried out and pointed as Mary departed. She herself heard a noise like, “a rocket, a long way off,” and looked to see a small cloud a few inches over the tree, rise, and move slowly towards the east until it disappeared. The crowd of pilgrims then returned to Fatima where they reported the amazing things they had seen, thus ensuring that there were between two and three thousand people present for the July apparition.
NOTE: I unfollow anyone, when photographs glorify immodesty in dress. Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima said to the three kids of Fatima, “Some fashions, will be introduced, that will offend God very much.”
95 Years ago from May 13, 1817 to October 13, 1917 Our Lady of the Rosary appeared to 3 Kids, in Fatima, Portugal. She predicted:
1. Immodest Fashions would be introduced, that would offend God very much.
2. Communism a month before the Russian Communist, Bolshievik Revolution.
3. Miracle of the Sun on July 13, 1917 would take place on October 13, 1917, so that all may believe.
4. Our Lady showed the 3 Kids Hell, on July 13, 1917, and told them to pray for poor sinners, so they would not go there.
5. September 13, 1917 she told them to continue to pray the Rosary everyday, for Peace.
